Men soon to become obsolete!
British researchers have developed human sperm from stem cells.
It is no joke. It is a breakthrough in reproductive science.
Scientists in Newcastle claim to have created human sperm in the laboratory in what they say is a world first.There you are Gentlemen. You have 5 years to make your case before the extreme feminists decide that you are no longer wanted or needed. And they will you know.
The researchers believe the work could eventually help men with fertility problems to father a child.
But other experts say they are not convinced that fully developed sperm have been created.
Writing in the journal Stem Cells and Development, the Newcastle team say it will be at least five years before the technique is perfected.
They began with stem cell lines derived from human embryos donated following IVF treatment.
The stem cells had been removed when the embryo was a few days old and were stored in tanks of liquid nitrogen.
The stem cells were brought to body temperature and put in a chemical mixture to encourage them to grow. They were "tagged" with a genetic marker which enabled the scientists to identify and separate so-called "germline" stem cells from which eggs and sperm are developed.
The male, XY stem cells underwent the crucial process of "meiosis" - halving the number of chromosomes. The process over creating and developing the sperm took four to six weeks.
