Purpose: To compare the ovarian response predictive ability of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and estradiol (E2) and to determine the age-specific distribution of serum AMH concentrations of Japanese women.
Methods: This was a multicenter (four-site), observational, analytic, cross-sectional Japanese study consisting of two parts: Study 1 (the prediction of the ovarian response of 236 participants who were undergoing controlled ovarian stimulation [COS]) and Study 2 (the distribution of the AMH concentration with an assay of 417 healthy women who were aged 20-49 years and who had normal menstrual cycles).
Results: The AMH had a significantly higher predictive value for the normal and high responders than FSH and E2 as a stronger correlation between the ovarian response and AMH was observed than for FSH and E2. The serum AMH concentration decreased proportionally with age.
Conclusion: The AMH concentration correlated well with the oocyte count in the patients who were undergoing COS for in vitro fertilization and was shown to predict the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome among these patients.
