Test Tube Revolution

The Early History of IVF

By John Leeton

'an adventure that shook the world.' – Alan Trounson

'Leeton, one of the researchers on the project, captures the excitement in fertility science at a time when male infertility had no treatment, fallopian tube blockage could seldom be treated in women and there was no such thing as a sperm bank.' – Conscience: The Newsjournal of Catholic Opinion, vol.25, no.1, 2014.

In Test Tube Revolution: The Early History of IVF, John Leeton, himself a key participant in the development of in vitro fertilisation, tells the story of his friend Carl Wood, the early days of IVF, and the battle between research teams in Australia and the United Kingdom to create and implement this profoundly important medical procedure.

This is the remarkable and inspiring story of one of the great medical achievements of the twentieth century.

‘captures the excitement in fertility science at a time when male infertility had no treatment, fallopian tube blockage could seldom be treated in women and there was no such thing as a sperm bank,’ — Conscience (US)
