New Study: Innovative Technique Allows Male Cancer Survivors Who are Sterile from Treatment to Father Children

The study, “Paternity after directed collection of testicular sperm for in vitro fertilization after BMT for hematological malignancies,” documented two novel cases of men who had received high does of chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation. The men had previously been diagnosed and treated for hemotologic cancers (chronic myelogenous leukemia and Hodgkin’s disease) and later, as survivors, desired to father children.
