    Cancer cells purged from human ovarian tissue fragments by pharmacological inhibition of YAP/TAZ oncoproteins 

    A new paper published in Human Reproduction March 2019 helps to solve the question as to whether it is possible to eliminate metastasized cancer cells from ovarian cortex fragments prior to auto transplantation - without compromising the tissue or follicles. In ex vivo experiments pharmacological inhibition of YAP/TAZ enabled the team from Radboud University, The Netherlands, to eradicate from human ovarian

    Preserving fertility after childhood cancer treatment

    Researchers at the University of Michigan working with mice report on a new approach to assist post cancer treatment girls; chemo and radio therapy for cancer are toxic to the follicles and normally leave patients sterile. Currently a young female patient’s route to pregnancy is to freeze ovarian tissue prior to treatment with the hope that follicle growth and maturation
