Stem cells could lead to future fertility treatments, study says

In a long-sought achievement, Japanese researchers have demonstrated in mice that both eggs and sperm can be grown from stem cells and combined to produce healthy offspring, pointing the way to a new avenue for fertility treatments. If the milestone accomplishment can be repeated in humans -- and experts said they are optimistic that such efforts will ultimately succeed -- the technique could make it easier for women in their 30s or 40s to become mothers. It could also help men and women whose reproductive organs have been damaged by cancer treatments or other causes.

Balancing fertility and child survival in the developing world

Public release date: 2-Oct-2012 [ | E-mail | Share ] Contact: Dominique Fourniol d.fourniol@ucl.ac.uk 44-788-183-3274 University College London Children in smaller families are only slightly more likely to survive childhood in high mortality environments, according to a new study of mothers and children in sub-Saharan Africa seeking to understand why women, even in the highest fertility populations in world, rarely give birth to more than eight children. The study by Dr David Lawson and Dr Alex Alvergne from UCL Anthropology, and Dr Mhairi Gibson from the University of Bristol, challenges the popular theory proposed by evolutionary anthropologists that natural selection sets the upper limit of high fertility to balance a 'life history trade-off'' between fertility and child survival, with too many births believed to dangerously compromise a mother's ability to provide sufficient care for each child. The study also considers why fertility rates drop when societies become richer, a trend referred to as the demographic transition
