Research Interests/Skills

Dr. C. Sutton, UBC OBGYN resident is working on a project titled, Efficacy of Gonadotropins and IUI as the Next Step in Monofollicular Versus Multifollicular Responsive Clomiphene-Failed Treatments, under the supervision of B. Taylor and M. Bedaiwy. It is a non-randomized clinical trial involving two sites, Olive and PCRM. The participants are women with unexplained infertility who had failed to conceive after Clomiphene for three cycles at minimum dosage. These participants are split into two groups, Mononfollicular IUI and Multifollicular IUI after taking Gonadotropins. It is a non-randomized trial because the women determine if they prefer IVF or Gonadotropins. It was stated that it would be very expensive to do a randomized trial and this trial will set the stage for a randomized trial for the next generation of OBGYN residents.
