Ten British women without wombs will get the chance to carry their own babies after doctors received the go-ahead for the first ever womb transplants in the UK.
Ethical approval has been granted by a special committee at Imperial College London for 10 transplants as part of a clinical trial.
It will launch in the spring and more than 100 women have been identified as potential recipients of donor wombs.
A team of doctors say they made have performed a successful stem cell transplant into the eye of a woman with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). If it works, it could prevent problems for millions of visually-impaired people
AMD is a painless eye condition that causes the loss of central vision, usually in both eyes. Reading becomes difficult, colours appear less vibrant and people's faces are difficult to recognise. Activities such as reading, writing and watching television can become impossible.
AMD currently affects more than 600,000 people in the UK and is the leading cause of blindness
By 2020, it's predicted almost 700,000 people will have late-stage AMD in the UK.
Earlier this year, Tasha and her husband found out their IVF treatment was a success after she was given the all clear from an aggressive form of bone cancer. But sadly, it made a return - just weeks into her pregnancy.
A three-year-old obese girl has been diagnosed with diabetes in the US - one of the youngest ever people with the condition, experts have said.
An "uncontrolled" calorie intake and poor family diet led to the girl weighing 5st 7lb (35kg). The youngster was given diabetes drugs to bring her blood sugar levels under control.
Is this a wake-up call to British parents?
A row has broken out between public health officials and scientists over whether e-cigarettes are safe.
Claims by a Government-funded agency that e-cigarettes are 95 percent less harmful than smoking were based on a meeting of just 12 people, some with links to the tobacco industry, researchers have said.
Experts writing in the British Medical Journal joined The Lancet in criticising the evidence used by Public Health England in its report on e-cigarettes.
We ask Dr Hilary Jones for his expert opinion on the matter.
Heart attacks kill nearly 200 people each week before retirement age, new statistics from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) have revealed. The charity estimates that nearly 10,000 people across the UK suffered a fatal heart attack before reaching the age of 65 in 2014.
The figures have been released as the BHF launches a new campaign to highlight how heart conditions, including heart attack, can suddenly devastate families across the country on a daily basis.
Nearly a million prescriptions for Ritalin and related drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were prescribed last year in the UK - that's more than double the amount of a decade ago. Yet guidelines from NHS watchdog NICE say that it should only be used as a last resort.
The ADHD foundation is calling for more behavioural courses to be offered and says children are being let down by being prescribed drugs "too readily".
Dr Hilary joins us to discuss the findings.
It's the biggest cause of death amongst women in the UK, but now new research suggests that, rather than being on the rise, rates of dementia are actually leveling off.
Scientists have found that over 65s are now less likely to develop dementia. Dr Hilary is here to explain more about the research, and what we can all do to reduce our risk.
