Dr. Braverman,

Do you believe elevated nk cells can compromise egg quality? And if so, at what stage do you believe this occurs in the egg?

there is data showing "infalmmaton in the developing follicle" can compromise the egg . We are not sure if this is in mitotic division for a cytoplasm issue. Whether it be NK cells or inflammatory cytokines there is probably some effect. We are studying this now.
