Table 1 Effect of trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on the embryo production rates after vitrification/warming of bovine oocytes

From: Conjugated linoleic acid improves oocyte cryosurvival through modulation of the cryoprotectants influx rate

Treatment Viable oocytes (n) D7/8 embryo/viable oocytes (%) D7/8 embryo/cleaved embryos (%)
Control 235 21.2+/−2.0a 28.1+/−3.5
CLA 256 18.9+/−1.9a 27.4+/−3.9
Control vitrified 195 1.0+/−1.0b 14.4+/−15.8
CLA vitrified 207 3.0+/−1.0b 22.4+/−10.0
