Groundbreaking Chinese Study Shows Man can also give Birth

Under certain situations, men, believe it or not, may conceive like women, according to Chinese research.

An expert team from the Naval Medical University in Shanghai recently conducted research on the feasibility of male animals having children.

They used a male mouse as their sample for the investigation. The male mouse has been artificially fertilized by the researchers.

As per the scientists' team, the male mouse eventually gave birth to some mice. They also claimed that their research demonstrated that man can conceive.

They did not elaborate on the ramifications for people, although it follows research into the potential of transplanting a uterus into transgender women.

"It will help transgenders who wish to have their child. But a further study on the matter is yet to be done", a member of the scientists' team claimed.

The experiment, according to scientists at the Naval Medical University in Shanghai, might have a 'profound impact on reproductive biology.'

The researchers paired a male and female rat by connecting their skin and exchanging their blood, then transplanted a uterus into the male and implanted embryos into both male and female rats.

The embryos were let to grow to maturity, which is 21.5 days, and 10 healthy offspring were born out of 27 'normal' embryos in the male delivered through Caesarean section.

Those who survived to adulthood were able to procreate and had no long-term consequences on their heart, lungs, or liver, according to the researchers.

Emily McIvor, PETA's Senior Science Policy Advisor, branded the findings "frankenscience" and "vile."

Male pregnancy is an extremely unusual occurrence in nature, so rare that Syngnathidae, a fish family that includes seahorses, pipefishes, and seadragons, is the only known species in which males carry babies in pregnancy.

Human embryos might be nurtured in a test tube for five weeks, according to scientists, after mouse embryos grew a heart, head, and beating heart in a jar in a landmark study.

Human embryos may be the next test subjects in a revolutionary study that maintained mouse embryos alive outside of the womb for six days as they formed a heart, stomach, head, and limbs.

To replicate the natural process, an Israeli team created tiny jars with nutrients inside that were put on revolving rollers and pumped with a compressed oxygen mixture. The embryos were able to grow in the artificial womb for up to 12 days, and researchers claim they intend to continue working on growing human embryos until week five.

Although this work is considered revolutionary, the team recognizes that doing human trials will generate ethical discussions owing to the loss of human embryos throughout the research.
