  • organs
  • Some believe that it is possible to grow human organs outside a body, or perhaps in the body of another animal, that could then be harvested for transplanting into humans. (ethicsdaily.com)
  • Legalizing the sale of human organs has become a very controversial topic in the last few decades. (bartleby.com)
  • Besides that many of the offspring produced through cloning suffer abnormalities such as missing or deformed organs. (theroar.in)
  • Wilmut
  • Professor Ian Wilmut of the Roslin Institute pictured, with his old friend, 'Dolly', the world s first cloned sheep, who died on February 14 this year, and has now been pickled and mounted on a straw-covered plinth and is on permanent display at Edinburgh s Royal Museum. (aol.com)
  • Professor Ian Wilmut, head of the team which cloned Dolly, said the discovery of Dolly's condition was a disappointment. (aol.com)
  • species
  • But wait, while all of these creatures reproduce asexually through cloning, creating an exact replica of themselves, the cloning of more complex species, such as humans, still seems unnatural to many of us. (mtholyoke.edu)
  • Even in species like cattle, where cloning has become routine, only 4 percent of eggs that have received a transplanted nucleus survive. (discovermagazine.com)
  • As a species, we crossed into a new dimension this year, one we will never be able to retreat from: We have developed the science and technology of cloning to the point that reproducing a human is undoubtedly already in progress. (discovermagazine.com)
  • Our group and others have successfully used eggs to clone closely-related species (for instance, we cloned two endangered species - the guar and banteng using cow eggs). (bio-medicine.org)
  • We should not turn the human species into commodities and spare parts. (votesmart.org)
  • And I'm fearful that in the great intent that people have in moving forward with human cloning that what they're failing to do is to look at the human species as having inherent dignity and something that's worth standing up for and worth fighting for, instead -- in looking for cures, turning people into property and into research animals and spare parts. (votesmart.org)
  • researchers
  • The researchers believe this is why - despite initial success in cloning monkeys - other laboratories have been unable to repeat the effort. (abc.net.au)
  • While some reports hailed the work as a first step in cloning humans, the researchers were quick to dampen such suggestions, saying their focus was on "therapeutic' uses. (abc.net.au)
  • However, most researchers believe that in the foreseeable future it will not be possible to use this technique to produce a human clone that will develop to term. (bootstrike.com)
  • ethically
  • Human reproductive cloning is temporarily banned because of inadequate technical knowledge, inefficient procedures and is extremely dangerous and ethically irresponsible. (theroar.in)
  • Many other uncertainties linked to mental development of the offspring along with extreme dangers and inefficiency attempting to clone humans for the time being is ethically irresponsible and a foolish act. (theroar.in)
  • eggs
  • To support such services, there is a market in human eggs (women are paid several thousand dollars for eggs harvested from one cycle) and in wombs rented from surrogate mothers. (discovermagazine.com)
  • Due to the serious shortage of human donor eggs, cows, rabbits, and other animals have long been considered an attractive surrogate source of eggs. (bio-medicine.org)
  • These new results suggest that while bovine and rabbit eggs are capable of supporting limited cell division, specific reprogramming towards the normal human embryonic state does not occur. (bio-medicine.org)
  • I also want to point out one other thing: that if human cloning is to move forward in the United States -- and we all are opposed to this taking place, but if it does -- you're going to have to originate a number of eggs from women across the United States if not across the world -- turning women into virtual factories in producing human eggs for human cloning in specific cases.

  • immune
  • Although the polyclonal response confers advantages on the immune system, in particular, greater probability of reacting against pathogens, it also increases chances of developing certain autoimmune diseases resulting from the reaction of the immune system against native molecules produced within the host. (wikipedia.org)
  • restrictions
  • ANIMAL welfare activists in the United States are to seek new state and federal restrictions on the growing pet cloning industry. (wn.com)
  • Zavos
  • Siegel stated, "By sponsoring the World Court Initiative, HCPI seeks that the World Court strip away any vestige of legitimacy from potential human cloners, such as Zavos and Antinori. (innovations-report.com)
  • A reproductive specialist from Kentucky, Zavos made the prediction this past May in a hearing before a congressional subcommittee investigating the issue of cloning humans. (discovermagazine.com)
