Researchers claim 'ethical' stem cell breakthrough. 24/08/2006. ABC News Online:
A team of US researchers say they have developed a way to make human embryonic stem cells without harming the original embryo, a finding it says could dispel ethical objections to promising medical research using such cells.
"It is possible to generate stem cells without destroying the embryo and without destroying its potential for life," chief scientist Dr Robert Lanza said.
