Cloning Sperm for Infertility

A breakthrough has been reported in cloning sperm.

"SINGAPORE scientists have developed a way to create sperm-like stem cells from fish, which they used to fertilise a fish egg to produce a healthy offspring.

The offspring, which they have named Holly, is the world's first semi-cloned animal.

This breakthrough could potentially be used to treat infertility in humans, spelling hope for couples who have trouble conceiving."

This if from an article by Dawn Tay in Asia One News.

This exciting new research could be the cure for infertility that millions of couples have been seeking for so long.

It's all thanks to human cloning technology.

  2. Doctors don't know what causes infertility in about half the cases in men, but think many men's infertility problems may be rooted in their genes.
