Scientists rewrite rules of human reproduction
Saturday 07 April 2012 -- The independent


Scientists have successfully grown human eggs cells in a laboratory apparently from stem cells, for the first time.

The cells could be fertilized and lead to reversal of menopause in older women.
A “elixir of youth” may be possible, as some other medical benefits may become reality.

Sounds crazy.

Scientists will need a license in the U.K. to be able to go ahead with fertilization.

Informative article:


The first human egg cells that have been grown entirely in the laboratory from stem cells could be fertilised later this year in a development that will revolutionise fertility treatment and might even lead to a reversal of the menopause in older women.

Scientists are about to request a licence from the UK fertility watchdog to fertilise the eggs as part of a series of tests to generate an unlimited supply of human eggs, a breakthrough that could help infertile women to have babies as well as making women as fertile in later life as men.

Producing human eggs from stem cells would also open up the possibility of replenishing the ovaries of older women so that they do not suffer the age-related health problems associated with the menopause, from osteoporosis to heart disease.




Researchers at Edinburgh University are working with a team from Harvard Medical School in Boston to be the first in the world to produce mature human eggs from stem cells isolated from human ovarian tissue.



Could this radical technology bring forth a "perfect human" ?

It is not that big of a break through. Last year they created fully functional egg cells from sperm cells.

psh, I remember reading an article where scientists (in Korea? Japan?) created mice using....2 female rats. Thus lesbians can reproduce
