Pregnancy Established in an Infertile Patient After Transfer of a Donated Embryo Fertilised in Vitro
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1983 Mar 12; 286(6368): 835-838.
Australian researchers report achieving a pregnancy using in vitro fertilization and transfer of a donated embryo. The recipient, whose husband was infertile, became pregnant after receiving a donor ovum fertilized with donor sperm. The ovum donor, also under treatment for infertility, failed to conceive after three ova fertilized by her husband's sperm were re-implanted. The procedures used in the treatment of both women are outlined, and the possible reasons for the recipient's spontaneous abortion and the donor's failure to conceive are discussed. Also touched upon are the ethical, legal, and psychological implications of using donor material to achieve pregnancy. (KIE abstract)
