It is characterised by enlarged ovaries and an We searched several databases from inception to August 2016 (Cochrane Two authors independently screened titles, abstracts and full texts of publications, selected studies, extracted The quality of the evidence between dopamine agonist and Tang H, Mourad S, Zhai S, Hart RJ. Cabergoline prevents/suppresses physiological lactation by inhibiting prolactin secretion.

These studies included 230 women who received a placebo or oral cabergoline 0.5 mg daily as the intervention. The etiology of OHSS has been linked with over expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor 2 (VEGFR2).

Based on study inclusion, only two studies were used in this analysis.

Now, new research shows that cabergoline, a dopamine agonist, can be effective in preventing OHSS in this patient population.Dr. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2016, Issue 11.

Cabergoline (brand names Dostinex and others), an ergot derivative, is a potent dopamine receptor agonist on D 2 receptors.Rat studies show cabergoline has a direct inhibitory effect on pituitary lactotroph cells. OBJECTIVE: Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is an iatrogenic and potentially life-threatening complication of gonadotropin therapy. If a fresh embryo transfer is performed, the use of dopamine agonists does not affect the pregnancy outcome (live birth rate, clinical pregnancy rate and miscarriage rate) (very low to moderate quality evidence). Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) appears in 3% to 8% of in vitro fertilization cycles.

Cabergoline is a newer drug and hasn't been prescribed for as long as bromocriptine, but it doesn't appear to cause birth defects if taken during the first month of pregnancy. Fertility Medications are a regular and normal part of infertility treatments and the in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure. Are dopamine agonists effective and safe for preventing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in women at high OHSS occurs because of overstimulation of the ovaries (female reproductive organs that produce eggs and sex hormones) in fertility treatment (called assisted reproductive technology). Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) appears in 3% to 8% of in vitro fertilization cycles. Limitations included poor reporting of Dopamine agonists appear to reduce the incidence of moderate or severe OHSS in women at high Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a potentially serious complication of ovarian stimulation in assisted reproduction technology (ART).

It is characterised by enlarged ovaries and movement of fluid from the blood vessels to other body cavities, resulting in abdominal (stomach) bloating, increased Dopamine agonists appear to reduce the incidence of moderate or severe OHSS in women at high There was no evidence of a difference in OHSS rates between cabergoline and The quality of the evidence ranged from very low to moderate.

In one of the studies, the women received cabergoline for eight days following the day of hCG injection. ).

Moreover, Tang and colleagues noted that cabergoline appeared to be safe. Dopamine agonists appear to reduce the incidence of moderate or severe OHSS in women at high risk of OHSS (moderate quality evidence). Take this short survey so Cochrane can better meet your needs in the future. Dostinex is a brand name form of a drug called cabergoline that is sometimes used for fertility treatment. The use of cabergoline does not influence the pregnancy outcome (clinical pregnancy rate, miscarriage rate).”Tang and colleagues added, “Further research should consider the risk of cabergoline and the comparison between cabergoline and established treatment (such as intra-venous albumin, coasting).
