New research conducted by German and Israeli scientists has discovered the potential for infertile men to be able to father their own children by extracting germ cells from the testicles and growing sperm in a dish.

So far tests have only be successful with mice but researchers are confident that they can replicate their results in humans.  The main concern is proving that the sperm is not genetically damaged during the process. One suggestion to ensure the conditions are the same as the sperm would be in the testes is to incubate under the skin of mice.

Similar tests are also be done on eggs and embryos to help women who suffer with infertility problems.
