Successive publications covering these topics were summarised in 2001 and 2002 by Edwards,2,3 providing the basis for this chapter. Coincidentally, preimplantation growth in mammals were increasing in number following initial work in 1890 by Heape,4 who obtained rabbit offspring after transferring marked blastocysts into recipient does. In the early 20th century, Lewis and Gregory5 and Lewis and Wright6 cultured rabbit and mouse embryos through one or several cleavages. Pincus and Enzmann7 released rabbit ovarian oocytes from their follicles into culture media and recorded their spontaneous maturation to metaphase 2 and the extrusion of the first polar body.
Gaining parental permission, we decided to use them to make human embryo stem cell lines in vitro. 25,49 It was now apposite to begin work on stem cells, since Bourn Hall had conceived more than 100 IVF children, and high-quality blastocysts were growing in vitro. 50 They cleaved well, but four soon arrested. The other two embryos revealed good trophoblast activity as assessed by HCGβ assays at 120 and 170 hours after insemination. Denuded of their zona pellucida, they expanded and attached to plastic culture dishes at 189 and 216 hours after insemination, respectively.
