Cheaper treatment in exchange for donated eggs
HFEA have licensed the North East England Stem cell Institute to ask women to donate eggs for therapeutic cloning research. In exchange, treatment charges will be reduced. The team is also hoping that women not having treatment will donate their eggs for research.
There is concern that women may feel pressured into donating their eggs in exchange for cheaper treatment. There is also concern in how this option will be presented to patients.
It is thought that the clinic will be able to offer this service within a year.
