  • 3D-printed ovaries successfully restore mouse's fertility
    Scientists form Northwestern University have used 3D-printed ovaries to successfully restore fertility for the first time.

    A female mouse's ovaries were removed and replaced with 3D printed bioprosthetic ones using gelatine as the 'ink' and using eggs from different mice - enabling it to ovulate, conceive pups and give birth.

    Scientists hope to use 3D-printed ovaries to restore fertility and hormone production in women - particularly those who have undergone cancer treatment, or had childhood cancer.

    The research used 3D printing to produce the mice ovaries because it can be scalable and amendable to changes in size, architecture or materials that may be required for success in humans.
