Why the UK should reject three-parent embryos
British stem cell scientists have scored a big win by securing government approval for a scheme to avoid rare diseases. This will do far more harm than good.
Not with a bang, but a whimper
After more than a decade of research on embryonic stem cells, scientists are quietly moving on to greener pastures.
Will pigs usher in the next medical revolution?
Transplanting organs from pigs could be the answer to the shortage of organs for desperately ill patients.
Non, je ne regrette rien
It is now all but certain that human embryonic stem cells will not deliver cures to dread diseases. Apologies, anyone?
A setback for embryonic stem cell research
A milestone case in the European Court of Justice may signal a new direction in campaigns against human embryo research.
Most medical research is wrong? Are you kidding?
No. In fact, the leading figure in medical statistics says plainly, “most claimed research findings are false”.
Landmark stem cell trial begins
A US company has announced that it has begun a clinical trial with embryonic stem cells in the hope of curing spinal cord injuries. Ho hum.
Stem cell tears
have to look for other jobs now that federal funding for human embryo
the US may dry up?
Upsetting the stem cell applecart
Have two US presidents and a raft of agencies been misinterpreting a federal law for nearly ten years? A judge says Yes.
Consternation in Barad-dûr
An ethical development could make embryonic stem cell research obsolete and derail plans for California's $3 billion institute.
Harvard’s stem cell misstep
Harvard University has given the cause of therapeutic cloning the backing of its immense prestige. A stem cell scientist tells MercatorNet that this is based on inflated hopes and bad science.
To clone or not to clone
Whether or not embryos should be cloned and then destroyed for their stem cells has been one of the hottest issues in science this year. James Sherley, a professor at MIT, says that the use of cells from cloned embryos is scientifically and ethically dubious.
Cloning pioneer hits the wall
A Korean national hero has confessed that he told lies about his
research about cloning human embryos. Will his colleagues 'fess up, too?
False dawn for stem cell cures
The sick and the scientists are rejoicing over two different visions of
the future after the cloning of human embryos by Korean scientists.
