Recycled news

You may have read the story covered in some outlets today about a new device that can be used in IVF – if you have a memory for these things, it may sound familiar as the same story was reported back  in November.

When this device was authorised, the HFEA committee looking at it concluded that “as it is possible that the process might offer no improvement in efficacy and might add an unnecessary cost to patients, any patient information provided by clinics should highlight this. ” It added that as the process had not been subjected to a clinical trial, its efficacy was not known.
