Many couples who struggle to conceive turn to IVF to improve their chances. And while IVF doesn’t have a 100% success rate, scientists and researchers are working hard to improve the odds. Researchers from Peking University have created a new screening method that allows them to study the genetic code of an embryo. From that information, in theory they might be able to improve the success rate of IVF from 30% to 60%.
Lead researcher Jie Qiao said a clinical trial has already started, and that it offers hope to women who’ve endured repeated IVF treatment failures.
