WOBURN, Mass., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. researchers using CRi's Oosight(TM) imaging system have developed a gene transfer technique that has potential to prevent inherited diseases passed on from mothers to their children through mutated DNA in cell mitochondria.
Researchers believe they have found a way to avoid certain genetically inherited disorders through a special kind of in vitro fertilization (IVF).
