Spanish scientists use skin cells to create human sperm


BARCELONA: Scientists in Spain on Wednesday they had created human sperm from skin cells, a medical feat that could eventually lead to a treatment for infertility. The researchers said they were working to find a solution for the roughly 15 percent of couples worldwide who are unable to have children and whose only option is to use donated sperm or eggs. The result of their research, which was carried out with Stanford University in the United States, was published Tuesday in Scientific Reports, the online journal of Nature.
