RoseTracker| Researchers have invented the first artificial human ovary, which is already used to mature a woman’s eggs. The development represents a major step forward in infertility research and treatments. The articial ovary can also be used to study the impact of toxins and other chemicals have on egg maturation and health.
The advancement makes feasible the salvaging, storing and growing of immature eggs from women facing cancer and radiation treatment. What makes the artificial ovary a functional tissue, rather than just a cell culture, is that it brings all three ovarian cell types into a 3-D arrangement similar to a real ovary in the body. via Science Daily
