Clinical testing may soon begin in what is being identified as the “Three-parent embryo” technique. The technique will purportedly prevent the transmission of potentially fatal genetic diseases. According to Nature magazine, the process is ready for limited clinical testing and it is expected that an advisory panel of the U.K. Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority will make an official decision on whether they will be permitted sometime this month. The procedure, that transfers the nucleus from a mother’s egg cell into a donor egg that contains healthy mitochondria, was used earlier this year to create a baby born in Mexico.
