Three Person Baby - New Fertility Technique Revealed

World's first baby has been born using this new fertility technique i.e. "three person" fertility technique.

This found true when unborn baby of five-month-old has the usual DNA from its Mother and Father, and a little bit of genetic code from a donor.

US doctors took the unprecedented step to ensure the baby boy would be free of a genetic condition that his Jordanian mother carries in her genes.
Experts say the move heralds a new era in medicine and could help other families with rare genetic conditions.

But they warn that rigorous checks of this new and controversial technology, called mitochondrial donation, are needed.

It's not the first time scientists have created babies that have DNA from three people - that breakthrough began in the late 1990s - but it is an entirely new and significant method.
