Treating male infertility the new way--PAWP

Male infertility affects 10-15% of couples worldwide according to this article. Luckily, there's another option.

" "PAWP is able to induce embryo development in human eggs in a fashion similar to the natural triggering of embryo development by the sperm cell during fertilization," explains Dr. Oko (Biomedical and Molecular Sciences). "Based on our findings, we envision that physicians will be able to improve their diagnosis and treatment of infertility, a problem that affects 10 to 15 per cent of couples worldwide." "

So basically, they fertilize the egg with this synthetic protein which will allow it to grow into an embryo just as it would with sperm that does not have that ability. So they use both the man's sperm and the PAWP.

I'll keep you updated as I find out more, but this sounds like good news for those who struggle with it.

It currently only has about a 37% success rate, but that's way better than none.
