Abstract

Uterus transplantation for absolute uterus factor infertility is moving closer to human trials. The indication for uterus transplantation is evident as is its potential to ameliorate the social and personal burdens of these patients. The extensive collaborative research efforts between animal works, advancements in transplantation medicine, and immune suppression have culminated in demonstrating its apparent feasibility. As for the concerns regarding its risk, in perspective it is similar to other high-risk pregnancies. Moving uterus transplantation toward clinical applications obviously will require a continued commitment of research and support.
