First AUGMENT family shares their story
IVF success? It starts with egg health
If you have compromised egg health, it can impact your chances of getting pregnant. That’s where the AUGMENTSM treatment comes in. It is a new approach designed to improve egg health.*
Egg health is a key factor in fertility. While there are many factors that contribute to egg health, having adequate levels of energy inside of the egg is essential for fertilization and embryo development.
Compromised egg health is common. It happens naturally as we age, and younger women can have poor egg health due to inherited reproductive disorders, environmental factors or other medical conditions. The AUGMENTSM treatment uses the energy-producing mitochondria from your own egg precursor (EggPC℠) cells, which are immature egg cells found in the protective lining of your ovaries, to supplement the existing mitochondria in your eggs. This process is designed to boost your eggs’ energy levels for embryo development.
The AUGMENTSM advantage
The AUGMENTSM treatment is designed to help you improve the health of your existing eggs, and potentially enhance IVF.* The AUGMENT treatment complements the IVF procedure.

The AUGMENT treatment is designed to improve egg health and give your eggs an advantage during IVF.
Potential for increasedIVF success
The success of IVF, which is the current standard of care, is highly dependent on your age, but overall has a 30% average success rate. With the AUGMENT treatment, there is the potential to enhance IVF.*
Natural sources of energy
The AUGMENT treatment uses energy-producing mitochondria from your EggPC cells, which are immature egg cells found in the protective lining of your ovaries.
Complementary toIVF procedure
The AUGMENT treatment is an integrated part of your IVF cycle. Your fertility specialist combines the energy-producing mitochondria with the sperm, which are then added to your egg. The mitochondria from your EggPC cells supplements your egg’s existing mitochondria during IVF.
scienceon your side
Your body is able to function thanks to hard-working mitochondria, which create the energy for your cells. The AUGMENT treatment is based on multiple published reports that show adding mitochondria to an egg from a mitochondria-rich source, such as a donor egg, aids in embryo development.*
For the AUGMENT treatment, we use energy-producing mitochondria from your own EggPC cells to revitalize your eggs.
Women have immature egg cells in the protective lining of their ovaries that are called EggPC cells. EggPC cells contain mitochondria, which create the energy your cells need to function.
The AUGMENT treatment isolates mitochondria from your EggPC cells and, together with the sperm, these are added to your egg to supplement the existing mitochondria during IVF. By adding mitochondria from EggPC cells, the AUGMENT treatment is designed to give your eggs an advantage during IVF.

the AUGMENT science
A sample of your ovarian tissue is provided from a biopsy.
The tissue is processed to isolate mitochondria, the cell’s energy producers, from your EggPC cells.
Your fertility specialist combines the energy-producing mitochondria with the sperm, which are then added to your egg. The mitochondria from your EggPC cells supplement your egg’s existing mitochondria during IVF.
