Clinical prospects proposing an increase in the luteolytic dose of prostaglandin F2α in dairy cattle
MetadataShow full item record
Over the past few decades, the luteolytic dose of prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) and its analogs, used to synchronize estrus for fixed-time insemination in dairy cattle, have remained unchanged. Given the beneficial effects of PGF2α on a young corpus luteum and on multiple ovulations in a fixed-time insemination protocol, and its therapeutic abortive effects on multiple ovulations in pregnant cows, we propose the use of a double PGF2α dose or two PGF2α treatments 24 hours apart. Ultrasonography procedures serve to identify luteal structures and may therefore help to determine the best PGF2α dose to improve the fertility of high-producing dairy cows.

Relationship between heat stress during the peri-implantation period and early fetal loss in dairy cattle García Ispierto, Irina; López Gatius, Fernando; Santolaria Blasco, Pilar; Yániz Pérez de Albéniz, Jesús; Nogareda, Carmina; López-Béjar, M.; De Rensis, F. (Elsevier, 2006)The aim of the present study was to establish whether temperature-humidity index values, as a measure of heat comfort, from Days 1 to 40 of gestation could be associated with the pregnancy loss rate in high producing dairy ...
To what extent does photoperiod affect cattle reproduction? Clinical perspectives of melatonin administration De Rensis, F.; Morini, Giorgio; García Ispierto, Irina; López Gatius, Fernando (De Gruyter Open, 2020-08-01)The seasonality of reproduction in most mammals is dictated by photoperiod, temperature and nutrition. Melatonin, mainly synthesized in the pineal gland, is generally accepted as the active mediator of photoperiod responses ...
Manual Rupture Versus Transvaginal Ultrasound-guided Aspiration of Allanto-amniotic Fluid in Multiple Pregnancies: A Clinical Approach to Embryo Reduction in Dairy Cattle Andreu Vazquez, Cristina; García Ispierto, Irina; López Gatius, Fernando (Society for Reproduction and Development, 2012)To avoid the problems associated with twinning in dairy cattle, one of the embryos may be eliminated. This study compares the effect on pregnancy maintenance of two embryo reduction techniques, manual rupture (MR) and ...
