Dutch Medical Centre Probes Suspected IVF Sperm Mix-Up

December 27, 2016

(Medical Xpress) – A Dutch medical institution announced an investigation Tuesday after discovering that up to 26 women may have been fertilised by the wrong sperm cells at its IVF treatment laboratory.  A “procedural error” between mid-April 2015 and mid-November 2016 during the in vitro fertilisation was to blame, the University Medical Centre in Utrecht said in a statement.
