University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine scientists announced a milestone Thursday in their efforts to preserve the fertility of young boys undergoing cancer treatments. The advance involves using cryopreserved testicular tissue to produce sperm for in vitro fertilization.

Writing in the journal Science, the researchers announced the birth of a monkey born using this technique and said the success paves the way for human trials.
