MATERNAL SPINDLE TRANSFER (MST)
The maternal spindle transfer pilot trial involves mitochondrial replacement in human oocytes (eggs), fully preserving the genetic material of the woman who wants to reproduce. In this way, in the context of the pilot trial being carried out by the Institute of Life and Embryotools, the scientific team is researching the potential of addressing the problems of women with fertility issues and multiple IVF failures caused by cytoplasmic dysfunctions of their oocytes, and the potential of addressing serious mitochondrial diseases.
The clinical study is conducted at the IASO Hospital Institute of Life Lab, licensed and supervised by the Greek National Authority of Assisted Reproduction.
