Chromosomal aberrations created during in vitro fertilization do not endanger the future baby
The first stages of embryonic development happen very fast and can create errors in chromosomes🧬. These errors are much more common in #IVF🧫 embryos, which has raised major health concerns.🤔 A study published in Nature Medicine by Estonian, Belgian, Dutch and Finnish scientists shows that these errors are eliminated in later stages of pregnancy🤰 and IVF does not pose a health risk for these children.👶 Read more in the article https://bit.ly/33i4tCU or watch the video⬇ #novaator University of Tartu TÜ genoomika instituut University of Helsinki Maastricht University KU Leuven GROW-School for Oncology and Developmental Biology TÜ molekulaar- ja rakubioloogia instituut @maastrichtumc
