Scientists: DNA changes in “test-tube children”
A group of Australian researchers at the Murdoch Institute for Child Research analyzed methyl marks on the DNA of newborns and adults, which were naturally conceived, as well as using various reproductive technologies.
In the course of scientific work, special genetic markers were found in “test tube children”.
About 400 children took part in the study, they took blood tests in infancy, and after 22-25 years the procedure was repeated again to compare the set of epigenetic labels.
As a result, scientists emphasized that not one of the study participants had any congenital ailments.
In addition, scientists were able to establish that children conceived using IVF had 136 deformed DNA sections.
It is noteworthy that over time, these labels completely disappeared.
Thus, it turns out that between children conceived naturally and through artificial insemination, in fact, there is no difference.
