Both the current method (♦) and the method of Dieckmann et al. (■) comprised an increase of the ORS surface. The surface increase was significantly higher in ORS of the follicles cultivated according to the current protocol in comparison with that of the Dieckmann method, as measured at day 7 (ORS surface ratio 0.69, p=0.01**) and day 14 on day 14 (ORS surface ratio 0.72, p=0.018*).
