ONCOFERTILITY: FROM BENCH TO BEDSIDE TO BABIES

Life preserving cancer treatments can threaten fertility. More than 1.4 million people are diagnosed in the U.S. with cancer annually; 10% of these individuals are in their reproductive years (up to 45 years old). As the survival rate for adolescents and children continues to rise, late effects of treatment are taking on new urgency for survivors of this disease. Oncofertility is a new term that describes the effort to preserve fertility for young people with cancer and includes basic reproductive biology, clinical science, ethics, law, economics, pediatric surgery, and education sciences.
