Israeli Scientists See New Options For Infertile Women - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

The amniotic membrane which protects the baby in the womb is normally discarded after birth along with the placenta. But scientists in Israel believe it may hold the key to new treatments for infertility. They predict it will one day be possible to grow human eggs from the cells lining the amniotic sac, obviating the need for mature eggs from donors. Professor Eliezer Shalev of the Technion Israel Institute of Technology says the amniotic membrane can be used to grow immature egg cells.
