New hope for IVF women

19th October 2009

UK researchers have come up with a new egg screening technique which doubles the likelihood of IVF working.

The technique, known as comparative genomic hybridisation (CGH), examines embryos for genetic defects. Dr Dagan Wells from Oxford University, who headed the study, said: "We were taken aback by the impact it had on the success rates. I think it's at the point now that we can say with great confidence that we are seeing a positive effect of this."
