SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 3, 2021 – INVO Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVO), a medical device company focused on commercializing the world’s only in vivo Culture System (IVC), INVOcell®, announced today that Dr. Inger Britt Carlsson will be presenting at the Association for Fertility and Reproductive Health (AFRH) virtual conference this year on September 23rd and 24th on the topic of INVOcell® as an efficient, patient-centric and affordable fertility solution for the continent of Africa.
“Across the African continent, infertility is on the rise, with an average infertility rate of 10.1% and as high as 32% in some countries,” said Dr. Carlsson. “Infertility comes with devastating social, cultural, emotional and economic consequences for young couples in Africa. Unfortunately, accessing basic assisted reproductive technology treatments can be challenging or impossible for couples who have issues conceiving. The INVOcell solution is a low-cost and effective fertility treatment option that can be the answer to this burgeoning dilemma.”
The INVOcell procedure is the first in-vivo culture (IVC) system in the world used for the incubation of eggs and sperm during fertilization and early embryo development within the body, as an alternative to conventional In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI). Through its in vivo approach, INVOcell offers patients a more natural and intimate experience.
Steve Shum, CEO of INVO Bioscience, commented, “Prior to the start of the pandemic, INVO Bioscience entered into a distribution agreement in Nigeria, the most populous (~212 million) country in Africa, with G-Systems. We have recently completed the registration process in Nigeria as well as hosted training events with our distributor. We believe the African continent represents an attractive opportunity for INVOcell and look forward to accelerating our efforts to democratize fertility across the African continent.”
