NEW EGG-FREEZING TECHNIQUE OFFERS HOPE TO INFERTILE CANCER VICTIMS

May 31, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy may save a female cancer patient’s life but these therapies may also cause infertility. While freezing a woman’s eggs before cancer therapy begins offers one possible option, the thawing process often renders the eggs incapable of being fertilized. Now, a team of researchers from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center has studied a freezing technique called vitrification which freezes an egg instantaneously thereby preventing the formation of damaging ice crystals which destroy about 50% of frozen eggs. In trials using mouse eggs, vitrification has achieved a 98% egg survival rate.
