About this book

The rapidly advancing field of assisted reproduction holds great promise for the treatment of infertility, for the cloning of animals, and for the clinical treatment of human disease with embryonic stem cells. In Assisted Fertilization and Nuclear Transfer in Mammals, Don P. Wolf and Mary Zelinski-Wooten lead a panel of experienced authors in providing a comprehensive review of the procedures and techniques used in assisted reproduction, as well as in nuclear transfer for both the treatment of human infertility and the propagation of animals. Combining the details of clinical application with the physiological facts of reproduction, the authors treat such subjects as the in vitro maturation of oocytes, embryo culture, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, and the process of nuclear transfer. Also treated are animal models for applied reproductive technologies (ARTs), the use of nuclear transfer in the preservation of endangered species, and the practical and bioethical issues associated with the cloning of humans.

Cutting-edge and wide-ranging, Assisted Fertilization and Nuclear Transfer in Mammals offers clinical ARTs practitioners, research scientists, those responsible for animal care, and students not only an informative historical perspective on the development of ARTs, but also updates on several of the more dynamic clinical areas, and a highly practical understanding of their applications.
