In this area, Inebir will focus on the study of six main guidelines.
This is a health problem that affects 200 million women around the world. It, sometimes, involves a restrictive condition for carrying out basic activities. Inebir is researching the development of new useful strategies for the treatment of endometriosis and searching for new biological markers, that allow early diagnosis of this disease and predict its evolution.
Over the past thirty years there has been an intense research of this disease and currently we have a huge amount of knowledge about molecular pathways that affect the development and progression of cancer. But more recent studies suggest the need to bear in mind the microenvironment surrounding the disease because the are external factors that could be directly related to the growth and progression of tumor cells. Inebir is developing research based on the concept of cancer as a general global condition, including emotional state, immunity and other general body factors that may influence the development and progression of the disease.
The uncertainty about development of cancer is a cause of distress for the women affected. With this in mind, Inebir is researching in the development of new biomarkers with predictive utility, in the evolution and prognosis of gynaecological diseases. Thus we are using the most advanced technological tools that are currently available.
At Inebir we´re working and researching on a new method of vitrification and devitrification “cryotec” always looking for innovation and achieving results. The author of this technique, Dr. Masashige Kuwayama has achieved the birth of 500.000 children due to his technique, which ensures a survival rate more than 99 percent of oocytes after thawing.

Data mining techniques provide an important alternative to traditional statistical methods for the creation of knowledge. Most of the analysis that are carried out in clinical databases are static and reflect a situation at a particular time and usually do not allow the achievement of more powerful models that provide a greater and better information. There is an increasing need to study the data from a dynamic perspective, in order to update the knowledge as new data is added this should enable us to establish very powerful trends or predictive models based on behavior patterns that the information itself offers us.
Although these techniques have been applied in other areas and other countries, in Spain and in the health sector, experiences are very limited in relation to the field of assisted reproduction.
Inebir has commenced a collaboration with the University of Seville to try to acquire knowledge of the data of their fertility treatments. The main objective is the early identification of hormonal responses of patients undergoing In Vitro Fertilization treatments by applying predictive data mining analysis of information contained in our clinic and analyse how these techniques can be applied in that environment. By means of this study we aim for behavior patterns that allow us to establish a set of rules to establish protocols to improve continuously. All this analysis is performed with the data processed anonymously and ensuring the privacy of our patients.
- Preserving fertility
Social and economic changes have contributed to ever increasing number of women delaying the age of their first pregnancy and childbirth, which means they are exposed to a higher risk of suffering diseases requiring potentially gonadotoxic treatment before fulfilling their reproductive wish. On the other hand, while most cancer patients are between the fifth and sixth decade of life or older, an increasing number of girls and young adults are also affected and manage to overcome the illness undergoing treatments that will seriously affect their reproductive potential. Preserving reproductive capacity becomes a very important aspect of the quality of life for these patients over time.
In the recent years, technologies associated with assisted reproduction have developed new techniques for cryopreservation of gametes, embryos and ovarian tissue that have open up the possibility of innovate preventive strategies unimaginable not long ago. Inebir continues investigating in this area to ensure our patients the possibility to fulfill in the future the dream of being mothers.
