A woman suffering from a condition called primary ovary insufficiency has given birth to a healthy baby after taking part in a pioneering study and clinical trial.
Using a technique called IVA ("in vitro activation") researchers removed the woman's ovaries, treated them outside the body, and re-implanted them near her fallopian tubes. The woman was then treated with hormones to stimulate the ovary follicles in which eggs develop.
Although the method was developed specifically for women suffering from primary ovary insufficiency, the researchers at Stanford University plan to investigative whether the technique can be used to treat other types of infertility.
