Researchers describe procedure that induces egg growth in infertile women

Earlier today, my colleague Krista Conger reported on a technique that induces egg growth in infertile women with primary ovarian insufficiency. In the video above, the researchers - along with Valerie Baker, MD, chief of Stanford’s Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility - further describe the work and its significance.

"This particular treatment does appear to be a real breakthrough - we're just cautious not to give false hope because [it] hasn't been done for large numbers of women yet,"  Baker notes. "But I think it really does hold much more potential than so many of the things that have been tried in the past."
