Babies from unconventional places.

Babies from unconventional places

Australia, Holland, France and England have already announced the birth of babies from frozen embryos, and now the United States is expecting. Richard P. Marrs of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles says one of his patients, implanted with an embryo that had been frozen after in vitro fertilization, is due to deliver in June.

In Israel, researchers from Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem have announced the birth of two babies from mothers with no ovaries. The women had received embryos transferred from other women, as well as hormones to replace what would have been produced by their ovaries, the researchers report in the March 27 NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE.
