40 Years of IVF

By the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

In July 1978, a remarkable medical breakthrough resulted in the birth of the first human conceived outside her mother’s body.

Celebrating this achievement and Louise Brown’s birth, Fertility and Sterility medical journal has produced a special issue describing the development of IVF from its beginnings, through the refinements that brought embryo implantation rates up from less than 5% to over 50%, to technologies holding the potential to develop eggs or sperm from stem cells and to repair genetic errors in embryos.

Sixty-five distinguished clinicians and researchers contributed to the monograph and together they present a comprehensive view of the field of assisted reproductive technology, past, present and future. You can read the full text here.
