Bone Marrow Restores Fertility In Female Mice


In a news article from Medical News Today, a study was conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital involving sterile mice and bone marrow.  These mice had been given chemotherapy that had made them infertile.  Then, one to eight weeks following the chemotherapy, the scientists then gave the mice bone marrow transplants from other healthy mice.

What they found was that the bone marrow made it to, and penetrated the ovaries of the sterile mice.  The ovaries were then able to produce eggs that resulted in litters of baby mice.  While these female mice were housed with healthy male mice, all but one of the mice had at least several sets of babies in the following 7 month time period.
