3D-printed ovaries allow infertile mice to give birth

The creation of artificial ovaries for humans is a step closer after birth of healthy pups from mice given ‘ovarian bioprosthesis’Infertile mice have given birth to healthy pups after having their fertility restored with ovary implants made with a 3D printer.Researchers created the synthetic ovaries by printing porous scaffolds from a gelatin ink and filling them with follicles, the tiny, fluid-holding sacs that contain immature egg cells.Continue reading...

This study sought to evaluate perceptions and insights regarding uterine transplantation among members of a women's health care national specialty organization in Canada. METHODS: The investigators obtained permission and used an electronic survey developed by Bortoletto et al. to conduct a cross-sectional study of members of the SOGC between April and May 2018. Participants were requested to answer a total of 29 questions grouped into four different categories: personal opinions and attitudes, medical opinions, ethical opinions, and demographics. The investigators compared answers with a published survey of members of...

Postoperative adhesions, which develop in approximately 50-85% of patients who have undergone abdominal surgery, often result in severe complications, including intestinal obstruction, female infertility, chronic pain, and contraindication of surgery for future abdominal illnesses such as cancer. Here, we investigated the cell source of collagen production in postoperative adhesions and explored mo...

Authors: Ciribé F, Panzarella R, Pisu MC, Di Cerbo A, Guidetti G, Canello S Abstract Male dog infertility may represent a serious concern in the canine breeding market. The aim of this clinical evaluation was to test the efficacy of a commercially available nutraceutical diet, enriched with Lepidium meyenii, Tribulus terrestris, L-carnitine, zinc, omega-3 (N-3) fatty acids, beta-carotene, vitamin E, and folic acid, in 28 male dogs suffering from infertility associated with hypospermia. All dogs received the diet over a period of 100 days. At the end of the evaluation period, no adverse effects, including hea...
