Using Stem Cells to Grow Human Eggs

There may be new hope for treating infertility.

Scientists in Massachusetts are using stem cells to grow human eggs.

They first tested the theory on mice, cultivating eggs that could be fertilized and produce embryos.

They were able to produce immature egg cells using human ovaries.

The work is still in the early stages.

You can find the report in the journal Nature Medicine.
