ABSTRACT
The article reports on the rules released by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) regarding the use of embryonic stem cell lines in research funded by the institutes. This move by the NIH reportedly follows the decision of U.S. President Barack Obama in March 2009 to remove the ban imposed by former President George W. Bush on using federal funds to support embryonic stem cell research. Under the new rules, cells must come from embryos voluntarily donated for research with informed consent.
