Gautam N Allahbadia
Infertility treatment in couples where one or both parents are infected with hepatitis raises many concerns about transmission of the infection to the baby, laboratory technicians, and medical staff, and contamination of other gametes/embryos that are from virus-free parents in the same laboratory. Exposure to the other partner is only a risk when the couple's hepatitis status is discordant. The management of infertility, in association with HBV or HCV, has sparked debates about the potential risk of spread of infection to virus-free individuals, embryos, and/or semen...
