Abstract
Superovulation causes detrimental effects, including embryonic loss and implantation failure. This study determined potential roles for insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) in uterine environment regulation and preimplantation development, in conjunction with the detrimental effects of superovulation in the rat. IGF-I may be beneficial to preimplantation embryonic development. IGF-I stimulated embryonic development and metabolism in vitro and increased the rate of implantation and fetal development when the blastocysts were transferred into a receptive uterus.
