What is ReceptivaDx™?
ReceptivaDxTM is a first of its kind test for the detection of inflammation of the uterine lining most commonly associated with endometriosis, a leading cause of infertility and implantation failure.
Women testing positive for ReceptivaDx are 5 times less likely to succeed in IVF than women testing negative.
ReceptivaDxTM (BCL6 Test) Predicts Chances for a Successful Transfer and Successful Pregnancy
How can the ReceptivaDx™ test help me?
High levels of BCL6 indicates inflammation usually associated with endometriosis, limiting the ability of the embryo to stick to the endometrial lining.
If endometriosis is suspected it can be treated by your physician. Current treatments include hormone therapy or laparoscopy. Patients can then resume pregnancy attempts shortly after with renewed confidence.
A negative BCL6 result provides reassurance to patients that endometriosis is not of concern and that future attempts at pregnancy are likely to be successful.
While other tests evaluate the quality of embryos or determine optimal embryo transfer windows, only ReceptivaDx™ can accurately detect inflammatory conditions on the uterine lining likely to cause implantation issues.
Why is ReceptivaDx™ testing Important?
For many women, the detection of endometriosis comes as a complete surprise. Although endometriosis has long been associated with pelvic pain, the majority of women testing positive for BCL6 had no other symptoms except for their recent fertility issues.
Before ReceptivaDx™, the only way to detect endometriosis was via laparoscopy, an expensive and invasive procedure not routinely offered unless major physical symptoms were present.
ReceptivaDx™ (BCL6 Test) Predicts Chances for a Successful Transfer and Successful Pregnancy
Women testing positive for ReceptivaDx:
• Less than 18% Pregnancy rate in next transfer attempt
• Less than 11% Success rate resulting in live birth
Women testing negative for ReceptivaDx:
• More than 70% Pregnancy rate in next transfer attempt
• More than 59% Success rate resulting in live birth
In a recent study published in the December 2017 issue of Fertility & Sterility, the official journal of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM*), BCL6 was able to identify women with a poor prognosis for IVF success and a successful pregnancy if left undetected and untreated.
