A New Era in Reproductive Technology: In Vitro Fertilization, Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer, and Donated Gametes and Embryos
Seibel, Machelle M.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1988 Mar 31; 318(13): 828-834.
An overview is presented of the status of the treatment of infertility by means of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and two of its recent technological spinoffs, gamete intrafallopian transfer and IVF with donated embryos. After describing the processes involved and statistics concerning the as yet relatively low rates of pregnancy achieved by IVF centers in the U.S., Seibel briefly discusses some of the ethical and legal considerations, such as concerns related to the cryopreservation of embryos and the issue of setting standards for IVF centers and practitioners.
