GW Professor, Anil Dubey, Ph.D., H.C.L.D., Publishes New Comprehensive Guide to the Diagnosis and Management of Infertility

WASHINGTON (April 2012) –  Anil Dubey, Ph.D., H.C.L.D., professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences and director of the  IVF and Andrology Labs at the GW Medical Faculty Associates, is the editor of the newly published book titled,  Infertility:  Diagnosis, Management and IVF.  The book published in early 2012 and serves as a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of infertility.

“The challenge for both the clinicians and scientists in the 21st century is to vigilantly continue to innovate and advance the science of assisted reproductive technology (ART) while avoiding any potential abuse. At a minimum, we need to further improve live birth rates and reduce the rate of multiple pregnancies, while remaining abreast in the ever-expanding field. Future medical historians will scrutinize how we take these steps, as the choices we make today will have consequences that will last beyond our lifetimes,” said Dr. Dubey, who has an extensive bibliography of research in the field of Reproductive Physiology, including Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and Blastocyst Culture.

As a collection of chapters written by renowned experts in the field of infertility across a broad series of topics, Dr. Dubey was able to create a text book that will provide physicians and scientists with the most innovative information in this dynamic field.  Said by leading experts to be the next standard textbook for infertility management, the book gives an introduction to infertility and fertility testing, followed by chapters that discuss the causes and treatment of both male and female infertility -- focusing on In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and various aspects of the IVF laboratory including protocols, handling of embryo transfers, freezing and biopsy for preimplantation genetic screening.  It also explores quality management of IVF programs, practice guidelines, ethical and social aspects of infertility and IVF, as well as preservation of future fertility for cancer or delaying childbearing age.  The manual includes more than 200 color images and illustrations.

Alan H. DeCherney, M.D., head of the Program in Reproductive and Adult Endocrinology, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development at the National Institutes of Health and author of the book’s foreword noted that “the text is well organized and will serve both as something that can be read from cover to cover, and as an up-to-date reference.”

Infertility: Diagnosis, Management and IVF was published by Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) LTD, headquartered in New Delhi, Panama City and London, and is available at
