The article discusses a study conducted by H.N. Wilken-Jensen and colleagues which aims to evaluate the immature oocytes' developmental competence collected from surplus medulla tissue of ovarian tissue in connection with the cryopreservation of ovarian tissue for fertility preservation. The study examines ovarian tissue from 69 girls and women that are cryopreserved and incubated. Results show that immature oocytes from local hospitals with short transportation time has higher maturation time.
