 Abstract
The review describes the current trends of the development of cell and gene technologies in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive medicine. The strategies of allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the myeloablative treatment of germinal tumors and breast cancer are considered, as well as adoptive immunotherapy, modern approaches to the treatment of female and male infertility, and also prenatal cell and gene therapy. The problems and achievements in uterus transplantation are described, as well as the successes in the cryopreservation of reproductive cells and tissues.
