August 2006
Wellness Options;2006, Issue 27, p8
This article focuses on research published in the journal "Nature" in which scientists report they have developed a technique to produce human embryonic stem cells by removing single cells from an embryo. This would allow stem cell research, but avoid the controversial destruction of human embryos.
