Abstract:   (8184 Views)
More than the half of cancer patients undergo cancer treatments of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Unfortunately treatment with invasive methods occasionally lead to severe side effects. Patients who undergo chemotherapy can be affected by premature ovarian failure, an important cause of infertility. Ovarian tissue cryopreservation is suggested as the only way for preservation of sex cells and fertility preservation in cases of prepubertal girls and women with sterility attributed to chemotherapy, radiotherapy, genetic disorders or specific diseases.
