Fertility Dreams
04 Oct 2012
 

The Washington post wrote on the 4 th of October 2012 research on mice may lead to new fertility treatment for women.

 Scientists have turned mouse skin cells into eggs that produced baby mice – a technique that, if successfully applied to humans, could someday allow women to stop worrying about their ticking of their biological clocks and perhaps even help couples create “designer babies”

 For technical as well as ethical reasons, nobody expects doctors will be making eggs from women’s skin cells any time soon. But some see possibilities and questions about its use.

 Some experts say it could help millions of women who don’t have working eggs of their own, whether because of a medical condition or cancer treatment or because they are too old.

 “It could mean the reproductive clock doesn’t tick for women anymore”, said Hank Greely, a Stanford university law professor who studies the implication of biomedical technology’s.

 “I think it is a pretty large advance in the next generation of reproductive technologies for women.”

 The mice experiments were reported online Thursday in the journal science by scientists at Kyoto university in Japan. The same group had previously reported work with male mouse cells that lead to sperm.

 In the new work, they began with genetically reprogrammed skin cells from female foetal mice. The reprogramming technique, discovered several years ago, makes an ordinary cell revert to a kind of blank slate, so it can be chemically prodded to develop into any kind of cell.

 The Japanese researchers turned these cells into an early stage version of eggs. Then they mixed them with mouse ovarian cells and implanted them in the laboratory, and placed them into surrogate mother mice. The result: three baby mice, which grew into fertile adults.

 That procedure is too cumbersome to be adopted directly for human use, experts said, and study co-author Katsuhiko Hayashi said in an email that is also too inefficient.

Dr Ahmed Ismail , Queensway Clinic Consultant Gynaecologist and Obstetrician & Infertility Expert has been dreaming since 1994 that female egg if it is not available or available but we are unable to fertilize through IVF it must be another way to use the woman cells from other part of her body easily accessible and with a laboratory modifications, once the  discovery has achieved success many current expensive procedures will be replaced and expensive medications will be avoided, it would be a revolution in the treatment of female infertility due to ovarian factors.

 Success in the laboratory mice means a possible success in future for human race.
