But the therapeutic cloning
technique they employed would also be the start of the process of making duplicate humans.
New research from the University of Nevada, Reno provides strong evidence that a majority of Americans favor ongoing research in all stem cell research, including the use of therapeutic cloning
which is currently banned in the US.
Burt carefully avoided any mention of so-called therapeutic cloning
or the fact that both therapeutic and reproductive cloning use the same techniquesomatic cell nuclear transfer or SCNT (which the National Institutes of Health has called "the scientific term for cloning")to produce a new human organism.
Prompted by an image of therapeutic cloning
presented on a South Korean stamp, a brief review of stem cell research and the events of the Woo-suk Hwang scandal are discussed.
An Australian ban on the research, known as therapeutic cloning
or somatic cell nuclear transfer, was lifted in December 2006 after a rare conscience vote in the national parliament.
The British government introduced legislation in order to allow licensed therapeutic cloning
in a debate in January 2001 after an amendment to the Human Fertilization & Embryology Act 1990.
Ever since the birth of Dolly the sheep in 1997, this kind of therapeutic cloning
has been a goal for medical research.
The Edinburgh University professor, said the new technique was "easier to accept socially" than therapeutic cloning
The small margin of victory could be owing to deceptive ads placed by the measure's supporters, which claimed that the amendment bans "human cloning" The only difference between the two types of cloning is that in human cloning, the embryo is implanted in the uterus, and in therapeutic cloning
, it is not.
If granted the HFEA licence will allow scientists to create hybrid embryos through a technique known as nuclear transfer, or therapeutic cloning
The research, known as therapeutic cloning
, is hailed as the next stage in stem cell development.
