Clinical Research
 
As part of our commitment to advances and innovation in medicine, Bellevue University Medical Center participates in the conduct of research in various fields, all of which are of the highest caliber, many of which are multi-centered and international. Below is a list of the clinical research trials ongoing at Bellevue University Medical Center:

• UTERUS TRANSPLANTATION

Uterine Factor Infertility (UFI) is a condition where a woman cannot carry a pregnancy because she was born without a uterus, or has a dysfunctional uterus (for e.g. from cancer or other disease). At least 100,000 women are estimated to be affected in MENAT by this type of infertility which is the only one lacking a treatment today.

At the Sahlengrenska Academy, the University of Gothenburg and the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden, a research project has been ongoing since 1999 which aims to provide women with the possibility of having biological children with the aid of a transplanted uterus. The Swedish research team accomplished its first birth in September 2014 and has performed a total of nine uterus transplants that have resulted in five pregnancies and four live births.

Bellevue Medical Center, renowned for its high quality standards, has been chosen by the Swedish team for an exclusive partnership in the Middle East/North Africa & Turkey Region, to perform the pioneer uterus transplant among the first worldwide centers.
