Service Description

Flow Cytometry Intralipid is a commonly used fat emulsion that is given intravenously as a source of nutrition to patients who are unable to eat or absorb nutrients normally. In the field of reproductive medicine, Intralipid is sometimes used as an adjuvant therapy to treat certain types of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss. Resistance to Intralipid refers to a condition in which patients do not respond to the therapy, meaning that it does not improve their fertility or reduce their risk of pregnancy loss. The exact mechanisms of resistance to Intralipid are not well understood, but genetic factors are thought to play a role. Some studies have suggested that genetic variations in the immune system may influence a patient's response to Intralipid therapy. For example, certain variations in genes that regulate natural killer (NK) cell activity have been associated with a reduced response to Intralipid therapy in women with recurrent pregnancy loss. Additionally, variations in genes that regulate the production of cytokines, which are signalling molecules involved in immune system function, may also influence response to Intralipid therapy.
