Scientists have grown human egg cells to full maturity in the lab in a potential breakthrough for fertility treatment, they announced in a study published Friday. Researchers in New York and Edinburgh developed a new method to grow eggs from very early-stage cells obtained from ovary tissue

There is much more to do before lab - grown human eggs could be safely be made ready for fertilisation with sperm. LONDON: Scientists have succeeded for the first time in growing human eggs in a laboratory from the earliest stages in ovarian tissue all the way to full maturity – a scientific

Researchers in New York and Edinburgh developed a new method to grow eggs from very early-stage cells obtained from ovary tissue, a team reported in the journal Molecular Human Reproduction.

The eggs were grown to the point at which they could be fertilized.

This had previously been achieved with mouse egg cells, while human eggs had been successfully cultivated starting from a much later stage of development.

Two Easy Ways to Poach an Egg

  Two Easy Ways to Poach an Egg Poached eggs are the super stars of brunch and the heroes of salads that eat like a meal, but many a home cook is put off by the process of cooking one. If you are skittish about dropping a raw egg into simmering water, relax, it’s not as hard as it’s cracked up to be. This is part of The Grown-Up Kitchen, Skillet’s series designed to answer your most basic culinary questions and fill in any gaps that may be missing in your home chef education.Before we get into the eggsact cooking process, there are a few general cooking practices you should observe:Use simmering, not boiling water. Big, violent bubbles can tear your little egg apart.

"The latest study is the first time a human egg has been developed in the lab from its earliest stage to full maturity," said a statement from the University of Edinburgh.

Experts who did not take part in the research hailed the achievement as promising, but stressed it would take years to translate into a safe and proven therapy.

The technique holds promise specifically for women who have to go through sterilizing treatments such as chemotherapy.

It would allow them to freeze early-stage egg cells before undergoing treatment, to be matured in the lab at a later time to be fertilised with sperm to make a baby.

Traditionally, cancer patients can have a piece of ovary removed before chemotherapy, but reimplanting the tissue later may risk reintroducing cancer.

How to Make Perfect Deviled Eggs

  How to Make Perfect Deviled Eggs Fancy deviled eggs have become something of a trend. It seems that every little bistro and wine bar offers some sort of “elevated” take on the picnic classic, usually with a bit of crispy pork (or even caviar) on top. You do not, however, need a prosciutto crisp on top of your deviled egg for it to be good; the best ones are the simplest. This isn’t to say you can’t top with them with fancy foods like salmon roe or candied bacon, but you shouldn’t have to. Deviled eggs are infinitely riffable, but you should master the no-frills, basic version before embarking on such riffing.

"This is an elegant piece of work, demonstrating for the first time that human eggs can be grown to maturity in a laboratory," Channa Jayasena of the Imperial College London said in a comment on the study results.

"It would take several years to translate this into a therapy. However, this is an important breakthrough, which could offer hope to women with infertility in the future."

Azim Surani of the University of Cambridge pointed out that the eggs yielded by the research were smaller than normal, and "it might be of interest to test the developmental potential of these eggs".

And Robin Lovell-Badge of The Francis Crick Institute said the procedure was "really quite inefficient", with only nine out of dozens of early-stage cells becoming mature eggs.

Study co-author Evelyn Telfer of the University of Edinburgh said the team was now studying how healthy the eggs are.

"We also hope to find out, subject to regulatory approval, whether they can be fertilised," she said.

Are Egg McMuffins Made with Real Eggs? .
<p>What magically makes the eggs in McDonald's Egg McMuffins so perfectly round?</p>They can't be real...right? Wrong. And ditto for the Sausage McMuffin with Egg. Indeed, these breakfast staples are made with real USDA Grade A eggs, and the circular perfection is achieved through a simple cooking technique, shown below.
