News: Infertility risk linked to air pollution

23 February 2021 by Christina Burke

High pollution levels can increase the risk of infertility by up to 20 percent, a study in China has found.

The researchers wrote that their findings point to pollution as 'an unignorable risk factor for infertility'. It is believed to be the first study that examines the link between air pollution and infertility in the general population, rather than solely in fertility patients.

News: Developing embryos reveal earliest immune response yet

16 February 2021 by Daniel Jacobson

The earliest signs of an innate immune response have been identified in embryos, shedding light on why some fail to form properly during early development.

As reported last week in Nature, early embryos, lacking specialised immune cells, are particularly prone to cellular defects which can lead to developmental failures. Researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain, found that cells in the embryo's epithelium, the first tissue to form during vertebrate development, are able to clear surrounding dead cells, thereby increasing chances of survival, in a process known as 'epithelial phagocytosis'.
