Abstract
Heritable 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.
