Abstract

This paper reviews the most relevant literature from the past 10 years on different techniques for the culture of fresh and cryopreserved ovarian tissue from animals and humans. Information on strategies for culturing whole ovarian tissue and isolated follicles are provided as well as an updated and comprehensive view of the role that growth factors have in mediating and regulating in vitro folliculogenesis.
