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

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.
