Abstract

To discover simple biomarkers to evaluate the aging or quality of human oocytes and clinical pregnancy rates is needed. However, the association among serum α-klotho concentrations during preimplantation, the aging or quality of human oocytes and clinical pregnancy rates has not been investigated. The serum α-klotho concentrations during preimplantation decreased due to aging (p < 0.001), whereas the maturation rates of human oocytes (p < 0.001) and the fertilization rates (p < 0.001) improved in association with increased serum α-klotho concentrations. Furthermore, multiple logistic regression analysis showed that the clinical pregnancy rates were influenced by serum α-klotho concentrations during preimplantation (p < 0.001), the patient's age (p = 0.003), maturation rates of human oocytes (p < 0.001), fertilization rates (p < 0.001) and the serum 25 (OH) D levels (p < 0.001) regardless of race (p = 0.29) and BMI (p = 0.96). The serum α-klotho concentrations during preimplantation would be a simple biomarker in order to predict the aging or quality of human oocytes and clinical pregnancy rates.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 April 2016.
All research outputs
#970,841
of 7,551,260 outputs
Outputs from SpringerPlus
#133
of 1,696 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#54,758
of 324,627 outputs
Outputs of similar age from SpringerPlus
#15
of 345 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,551,260 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 87th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,696 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 324,627 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 345 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
