Israeli scientists claim to have extended women’s fertility by successfully reversing the aging mechanism in eggs using antiviral medications, which they claim is a big breakthrough.
When a woman is very young, her egg cells begin to accrue damage to their genetic material. Her eggs have often accumulated so much DNA damage by the time she is in her late forties that they are unable to mature and be fertilized.
Antiviral medications could reverse the process in mouse and human egg cells, allowing them to revert to their youthful state, according to researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU).
A similar achievement has been achieved by inserting two genes into the DNA of mouse egg cells; the implanted genes create enzymes that block the cascade of events that leads to the activation of the DNA’s harmful sections.
