This conference will review and further enlighten the main topics discussed during the First world conference on luteinizing hormone (LH) in ART: A flight of discovery in Naples, Italy on 27-28 May 2016. The role of LH during folliculogenesis has heightened curiosity for at least three decades. In particular, the scientific community is still divided over recognizing the relevance of LH containing drugs during controlled ovarian stimulation (COS). Availability of recombinant drugs has offered, for the first time, the opportunity to explore the role of the follicle  stimulating hormone (FSH) and LH separately. Despite the opportunity, the role of recombinant LH is still a matter of debate. This conference will show evidence from basic science to clinical practice regarding the use of  recombinant LH and will illustrate its possible benefits  as well as its physiopathological mechanism. Guided by  an expert, participants will grasp the rationale for using recombinant LH in assisted reproductive technology as well as understand the role of LH in human reproduction.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the physiology of LH and its role in ovulation induction
  • Grasp the state of the art regarding the use of recombinant LH
  • Individualise  groups  of  patients  that  required  LH  during stimulation protocols
  • Identify  specific  ovarian  reserve  markers  and  genotype polymorphisms useful for tailoring treatments and choosing the best approach
