Vietnam achieves success in new IVF treatment

Vietnam has become the first nation in Asia to successfully carry out a new treatment to help childless couples.

A girl was born using an IVF procedure in which doctors incubated a non-motile sperm cell and injected it into an egg, said Dr. Quan Hoang Lam, director of the Embryo Technology Centre.

Currently, the center is waiting for another six babies to be delivered from this procedure. Although the success ratio stands at 10 percent, Dr. Lam said, Vietnam is the only nation in Asia to have successfully applied the new method.
