The final session at the Progress Educational Trust's annual conference 'Make Do or Amend: Should We Update UK Fertility and Embryo Law?' continued the theme of looking to future reform of fertility law, as had the keynote address given by Sir James Munby. Chaired by Fiona Fox, on her last outing as the Chair of Trustees of PET, the session ranged from personal experience, through issues arising in legal cases and socio-legal research, right to the idea of 'ripping up the rulebook' and starting again.

Article: Comprehensive assessment of cryogenic storage risk and quality management concerns: best practice guidelines for ART labs

19 December 2018 by Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics

M. C. Schiewe & M. Freeman & J. B. Whitney & M. D. VerMilyea & A. Jones & M. Aguirre & C. Leisinger &G. Adaniya & N. Synder & R. Chilton & E. J. Behnke

Recent publicized events of cryogenic storage tank failures have created nationwide concern among infertility patients and patients storing embryos and gametes for future use. To assure patient confidence, quality management (QM) plans applied by in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratories need to include a more comprehensive focus on the cryostorage of reproductive specimens. The purpose of this review is to provide best practice guidelines for the cryogenic storage of sperm, oocytes, embryos, and other reproductive tissues (e.g., testicular and ovarian tissue, cord blood cells, and stem cells) and recommend a strategy of thorough and appropriate quality and risk management procedures aimed to alleviate or minimize the consequences from catastrophic events.

Article: Cautious optimism at the first live birth after womb transplant from deceased donor

17 December 2018 by Dr Natasha Hammond-Browning

The news broke on the 4 December 2018 that clinicians had achieved a successful pregnancy and live birth following a uterus transplant from a deceased donor. This has been heralded worldwide as groundbreaking for uterus transplantation, and gives credence to clinical trials persisting with deceased donation, despite previous attempts failing. The feasibility of the use of deceased donors for uterus transplants was looking uncertain, and so the demonstration of the proof of concept is welcomed.
