Sperm from mice stem cells offers infertility hope

A team of researchers at the Kyoto University has managed to produce viable sperm using the stem cells of mice in an experiment that researchers hope could one day lead to treating infertile men. The scientists succeeded to induce mice stem cells into creating sperm precursors, which were transplanted into infertile male mice. The mice then produced sperm that was successfully used to fertilize eggs in a lab dish, according to the scientific journal Cell. The experiment resulted in healthy and fertile offspring.
