Use of oocytes from anonymous, matched, fertile donors for prevention of heritable genetic diseasesJournal of medical genetics
NLM Title AbbreviationJ Med Genet
AbstractHeritable genetic diseases can be prevented with the use of donor oocytes. We report our experience in using donor oocytes from anonymous, matched, fertile donors in four women with heritable genetic disorders. Our results show that use of donor oocytes is a practical, successful, and currently available technique for the prevention of genetic disorders.
