Dear friends at REDLARA:
In order to encourage a deeper understanding on Bioethics, and promote a debate about diverse Bioethical Issues concerning Assisted Reproduction, we would like to invite you to take part in this FORUM, expressing your ideas, experiences and opinions.
This space, open to ideas exchange, is intended to enlarge our formation in Bioethics, which in turn will contribute to stimulate programs of Bioethics information and knowledge diffusion in our communities: this will help patients and legislators to take better informed decisions in the genuine pursuit of their own well-being, and the better for all.

FIV with ADN of 3 people
The British authorities have voted in favour of the creation of babies with DNA from two women and one man, in a historic move.

The UK is now set to become the first country to introduce laws to allow the creation of babies from three people.

In a free vote in the Commons, 382 MPs were in favour and 128 against the technique that stops genetic diseases being passed from mother to child.

During the debate, ministers said the technique was "light at the end of a dark tunnel" for families.

A further vote is required in the House of Lords. It everything goes ahead then the first such baby could be born next year.

Proponents said the backing was "good news for progressive medicine" but critics say they will continue to fight against the technique that they say raises too many ethical and safety concerns.

Estimates suggest 150 three-person babies could be born each year.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: "We're not playing god here, we're just making sure that two parents who want a healthy baby can have one."

If you had the opportunity to perform an IVF with this technique, would you do?

Hace varios años se realizó la transferencia de citoplasma de donante, para tratar ovocitos con mitocondrias defectuosas. Jacques Cohen es el científico que la desarrolló. Uno de los biólogos mas brillantes en el campo de IVF.

Pueden revisar en este link uno de sus artículos. http://humupd.oxfordjournals.org/content/7/4/428.short

Nacieron cerca de 30 niños. Se acordó una moratoria mientras se hacía seguimiento a los niños. Ya los niños tienen como 15 años. Es por eso que ahora UK ha permitido este nuevo tratamiento para óvulos con mitocondrias defectuosas.

Comparto con ustedes unas palabras de un amigo bioeticista, Jorge Alberto Alvarez Díaz. El primer nacimiento en el mundo de un ser humano conseguido mediante FIV ocurrió en 1978. Un solo caso en el mundo hasta ese momento. No se sabía si los niños que nacerían tendrían algún problema o no, cómo se desarrollarían, qué repercusiones biológicas y psicosociales habría, etc. Sin embargo, todo parecía indicar que no tendrían problemas. ¿Esta incertidumbre hizo que nadie se reprodujera con esa nueva ayuda tecnológica? Desde luego que no. La técnica de siguió aplicando, mejorando y hoy se sabe, analizando hacia atrás los casos, que prácticamente no hay problemas como para impedir que la reproducción asistida se siga haciendo.

Tendremos que seguir haciendo seguimiento a los niños nacidos con tratamientos para enfermedad mitocondrial.

Los 30 niños nacidos por transferencia de mitocondrias ya tienen 15 años y hasta ahora todo indica que están completamente sanos, sólo el tiempo tendrá la última palabra.
