Controlled ovulation protocol

Resource Type

  1. Protocol


  1. Resource Description
    The controlled ovulation (COv) protocol allows for a physiological model to investigate the ovulatory, luteinizing follicle in primates. To overcome the major limitation of studies in spontaneous cycles, i.e., the difficulty in determining when the midcycle LH surge begins and removing follicular tissues at precise intervals thereafter, the COv protocol in adult female rhesus monkeys permits precise timing for the induction of periovulatory events.
