New Hope For Fertility Preservation And Cancer Treatment
A new discovery out of Japan may give new hope to the preservation of the fertility of young boys about to undergo cancer treatment. Researchers have found a way to grow sperm in a lab dish by using testicular tissue from baby mice. They were then able to use this sperm to create healthy children. This can help young male cancer paitents because while adult males can freeze sperm prior to beginning chemotherapy or radiation treatment, young boys who have not yet entered into puberty cannot. This new technique would allow doctors to preserve the fertility of these boys by taking testicular tissue from them which could later be grown into sperm for use in a fertility treatment./br>
