Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and the Prospects for Human-Animal 'Hybrids'

02 March 2007

RAJ (Regulatory Affairs Journal) Pharma
This article discusses the current statutory regime governing human embryonic stem cell research in the UK and the proposed reforms relating to the legality of creating human-animal embryonic "hybrids". It is presently believed that the current UK law permits research on human-animal embryonic hybrids, which the UK government is interested to amend. The authors corroborate the widely held views of the medical community and discuss the implications of a ban on hybrid research to the progress of human embryonic stem cell research generally.
