The understanding of mechanisms of disease has expanded exponentially with developments in molecular and cellular biology. Similarly, new innovations in assisted reproductive technologies have opened up numerous options for treatment of infertility and improved understanding of the processes involved in gamete interaction and implantation. The increased focus on evidence-based practice has led to a critical review of existing evidence in the areas of therapy, diagnostic assessment, causation and prognosis and has provided the framework for conducting clinical studies and therapeutic trials that have high validity. Contributing authors have submitted high quality, timely manuscripts, which have allowed this comprehensive text on a wide range of topics in reproductive medicine and science. Advances in Fertility and Reproductive Medicine will provide a very useful resource to research and health care practitioners dedicated to improving the understanding and management of disorders in reproduction.
