Latent viral infection and infertility: A Chinese medicine Perspective
In this lecture, Drs. Brandon Horn and Wendy Yu will discuss viral latency and its effects on reproduction from both a Chinese and Western medicine perspective. They will begin with an exploration of latency both from a Chinese and Western science perspective. They will then highlight important physiological characteristics of viruses that can be exploited to interfere with their invasion and proliferation, as well as discussing some of the more common viruses encountered in reproductive medicine. Finally, they will discuss specific strategies for approaching your patients with chronic viral infections with a focus on herbal medicine, acupuncture and moxibustion. This lecture will include a section on how to help prevent and approach reproductive sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
