Human Eggs Developed In The Lab In World First

To create the eggs, a team led by Marie McLaughlin at the University of Edinburgh first took ovarian biopsies from women undergoing elective cesareans. This tissue was then dissected into thin strips, each containing many follicles.

Women are born with millions of follicles, but the number decreases to about 400,000 by puberty. Each month after puberty, several follicles begin to develop with one eventually releasing a mature egg capable of being fertilized.
