Kleffman's Coverage on Egg Risk is First Out of the Cyberspace Gate

Online news reports on today's egg risk conference came early. Reporter Sandy Kleffman of the Contra Costa Times wrote a piece that is now available on the Web, many hours before it will appear tomorrow in the recycled-tree version of the publication.

Here is her lead:

"The women who donate eggs to California's $3 billion stem cell research program may take great pride in serving as medical pioneers, but they could also face psychological and health risks that have not been fully explored by scientists, experts said Thursday.

"Many of the nation's top scholars in fertility and women's health gathered in Burlingame for an all-day hearing to assess how much is known about the risks egg donors face.

"Their conclusion: Many questions remain."
