Ovarian transplant pitch demonises menopause

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearch

Abstract

[Extract] Recent headlines in The Guardian proclaimed that 'a new medical procedure could delay menopause by 20 years'. The procedure involves surgically removing ovarian tissue from a woman while she is young and preserving it cryogenically. When the woman is older, the tissue can be surgically re-implanted. Consequently, the young and revived tissue will produce and release the hormones necessary to delay menopause.
