ABSTRACT
The article reports on the status of embryonic stem cell research in the U.S., noting the slow progress due to legal disputes which are affecting funding support. It cites the court case between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the two scientists James Sherley and Theresa Deisher on the issue of adult stem cells versus embryonic stem cells with regard to federal funding. Also mentioned are privately-funded trials involving embryonic stem cells in the treatment of some diseases, and some research on cancer treatment using these early cells.
