Survey-based study results to be published in the December issue of Reproductive BioMedicine Online, available online today, suggest children conceived via cytoplasmic transfer during in vitro fertilization (IVF) are in good physical and cognitive health more than a decade later. This is the first survey that describes parents' perception of the well-being of their children after the use of the experimental fertility procedure....

"The survey-based study is the first to explore the long-term impact of cytoplasmic transfer and the results appear to be positive," said Serena Chen, M.D., Director of the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science at Saint Barnabas.
