Human in-Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer
Lancet. 1983 Nov 19; 2(8360): 1187.
The text is presented of seven recommendations on the funding of research on in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer. The recommendations state that the technology is an "ethically acceptable method to overcome infertility" and urge support of related research. Seven priority areas of research are identified. Ova fertilized for a therapeutic purpose but no longer needed may be used for research if the informed consent of donors is obtained. National registers documenting attempts to induce pregnancy by IVF/ET and recording all resulting children are considered essential. Additional stipulations requested by the Medical Research Council of Norway are appended. [A correction in a later issue of
