New tool guides doctors to save cancer patients' fertility
Date:2/26/2009

p>Northwestern has led the emerging field of oncofertility and has provided a template of fertility preservation patient care to other medical centers. Woodruff developed and is principal investigator of the national Oncofertility Consortium, a National Institute of Health- funded network of doctors and scientists working to provide improved fertility preservation options for people diagnosed with cancer and other diseases.

At the Lurie Cancer Center, newly diagnosed men, women and adolescents work with a special Fertility Preservation Patient Navigator to figure out the best options to preserve their reproductive health before starting cancer therapy. The patient navigator then coordinates that plan with the patient's doctors.

Several fertility preservation techniques are under investigation at Northwestern. One is an entirely new way of growing and preserving a woman's immature eggs, or young follicles, so they can be fertilized and implanted into the uterus when she is ready to have children. Thus far, this technology has been used successfully in mice to produce live, healthy offspring.
