Cheaper IVF for egg donors

8th January 2008

The Newcastle NHS Fertility Centre has started a scheme offering half-price IVF treatment for women who donate their eggs to research.

Fifteen of the first 100 women to come forward have been selected and six patients will begin treatment this month. They will receive £1,500 – half the usual cost - off their IVF treatment. The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority issued the licence for the two-year project to start and scientists say extra eggs for research could progress stem cell therapies for conditions like Parkinson’s disease.
