Scientists Created Mammalian Eggs From Scratch To Produce Healthy Offspring

Shared by:

The new study marks the first time that eggs have been completely made without help from an animal. Since the mammalian eggs in the experiment were produced from scratch in the laboratory, the results suggest the

Wow. This is quite interesting. Fertility will definitely become a non-issue because if they are able to develop this technique to be safe for humans, then people who are overage or reproductively challenge, can still have children. Much has to be learned about this though. If and when this becomes available, "production" of humans should be controlled. A very strict criteria should be set to control who will be allowed to have "children" this way the science is prone to abus...

This is an interesting development in medical sciences that the eggs of mice are made from induced pluripotent stem cells in Lab. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) have embryonic properties and iPS can be transformed into a multitude of different tissues. Scientists have mingled the gonadal somatic cells with stem cells that are crucial in egg development. Gonadal somatic cells are taken from a 12-day old mouse embryo. The scientist also wanted to apply this technique to humans to make an eg...

Fedelic Ashish Toppo It's very interesting in the filed of medicine particularly for Gyneic and infertility. Scientists produced 11 healthy pups using stem cells of mice and it is pure in-vitro outstanding Technology without using egg cells. But experimentally it is ok to get healthy pups, then what about physical, mental, mortality issues. This study should be further investigated for the challenges then try...

The technique is far from ready to be implemented in humans though. This technique, in the short-term, will aid in egg development research. Creating human eggs from stem cells in the same way presents a range of technical and ethical problems that are yet to be addressed. The presence of chromosomal flaws in some embryos, for example, could lead to potentially fatal complications in embryos, making it too risky to experiment with human cells. Still, there’s some hope that as this research progr...
