However, current ART has failed to help infertile patients with non-obstructive azoospermia, unless donor sperm is used. In fact, most couples wish to have their own genetically related child. Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) can be generated from patients' somatic cells and in vitro derivation of functional germ cells from patient-specific iPSCs may provide new therapeutic strategies for… CONTINUE READING
