And Baby Makes Three. Using Human DNA To Make a Child

Posted: Updated:

The U-K looks ready to become the first country to allow the creation of babies using D-N-A from three people.

Three-person I-V-F technique could eliminate debilitating and potentially fatal mitochondrial diseases that are passed on from mother to child. The process would involve two women and one man.
The technique was developed at Newcastle University, and involves the transfer of human genetic material between two fertilized eggs. The research team is finalizing its report to submit to the Health Ministry.
