  • frozen
  • To enter the embryo through the eyes of science is to find, not a dormant structure frozen in time but, in the words of Richard Swenson, "a protoplasmic pyrotechnic factory in hyperdrive. (cbhd.org)
  • The study showed that frozen embryos have success rates just as high as fresh embryo transfers while offering one substantial benefit: they reduce costs dramatically. (growinggenerations.com)
  • The study found that the cost of a frozen embryo transfer came in at just about 60% of what could be expected for a fresh embryo transfer. (growinggenerations.com)
  • Growing Generations offers both fresh and frozen embryo transfer options to our clients. (growinggenerations.com)
  • Let's imagine you could watch a "Back to the Future" scenario in which you, yourself, are the frozen embryo. (libertariansforlife.org)
  • genetic material
  • The Academy report concludes that current research on inter-species embryos can be appropriately regulated by existing mechanisms, but suggests that it will become necessary "to consider the appropriate conceptual and regulatory framework for transgenic and chimeric animals that contain significant amounts of human genetic material" . (phgfoundation.org)
  • Clones
  • Every embryo of human origin is genetically a member of the human species, is genetically male or female, and, with the exception of identical twins and (hypothetically) clones, is genetically unique. (cbhd.org)

  • It feels that some assurance should be given to those who are concerned about this development in the light of the dubious efficacy of this research and its controversial nature. (ekklesia.co.uk)
  • These innovations have sprung from stem-cell science, a controversial but rapidly growing area of research. (theconversation.com)
  • Experiments to create Britain's first embryos that combine human and animal material will begin within months after a government watchdog gave its approval yesterday to two research teams to carry out the controversial work. (blogspot.com)
