Embryo biopsy approved in Japan

The photo shows Kagoshima University's medical hospital, where an ethics panel approved Jan. 28 the conditional practice of a testing method for hereditary diseases called embryo biopsy. It is the first medical institution in Japan to do so. The approval, which applies particularly to tests for Duchenne muscular dystrophy in newly fertilized eggs, could lead to the first application of the technique in a few months. ==Kyodo
