  1. Total dose of menotropin (hMG), highly-purified menotropin (HP-hMG) and follitropin alfa (r-hFSH) used per cycle resulting in a clinical pregnancy (n = 320) and per cycle resulting in a live birth (n = 251) (mean [± SD]).
  2. hMG, human menopausal gonadotropin; HP-hMG, highly purified hMG; ICSI, intracytoplasmic sperm injection; r-hFSH, recombinant human follicle-stimulating hormone; SD, standard deviation.
