Description

Daniel Brison, a professor of clinical embryology at the University of Manchester, said the study was an important proof of concept, but that questions remain.

“The study is limited by the fact that only one animal was born, and more extensive pre-clinical studies are now required to address the long-term health of individuals conceived by this method,” he said.
