Groundbreaking birth: Frozen Ovary Tissue

Published: June 11, 2015

Groundbreaking birth: Frozen Ovary Tissue, A woman in Belgium is the first in the world to give birth to a baby using transplanted ovarian tissue frozen when she was a child.

Doctors say the 27-year-old had her ovary removed at age 13, just before she began invasive treatment for sickle cell anaemia.

Her remaining ovary failed following the treatment, meaning she would have been unlikely to conceive without the transplant.

Experts hope that this procedure could eventually help other young patients.

The woman gave birth to a healthy boy in November last year and details of the case were published today in the journal Human Reproduction.

The woman has asked to remain anonymous.
