3-D Printed Ovaries

Bradley Mattes   |   June 02, 2017

Technology is moving at breakneck speed and sometimes it serves a good purpose.  Scientists have printed 3-D ovaries of mice and seeded it with follicles from the animals.  They then transplanted the manufactured ovaries into the mice from which they removed the original organs.  The mice went on to naturally mate and give birth to their own pups.  The research, published in Nature Communications, succeeded on the first try.  The long-term goal is to benefit cancer patients.  It’s a potential way to restore the reproductive health of women who’ve had surgery to save their lives but the process robbed them of their fertility.  According to media, they hope to perform a human implant within five years.  This could also be a breakthrough for pediatric cancer patients, who depend on their ovaries for puberty
