Three person babies IVF technique safe
The use of an IVF technique involving DNA from three people to create a baby has moved a step closer with a study that shows it is safe. Scientists at Newcastle University are trying to help women who are at risk of passing on serious genetic disorders to have a healthy child. Last year the UK approved laws to permit the procedure, which involves using donor DNA from a second woman. The study in Nature found the technique will lead to normal pregnancies. The process, known as "early pronuclear transfer" involves removing the parents' key genetic material from an embryo within hours of fertilisation, leaving behind the woman's faulty mitochondria.
