  • Scientifically
  • Scientifically, claims about potential benefits from therapeutic cloning have been misleading. (chooselifeaustralia.org.au)
  • His alleged success was touted as the fifth instance in the world in cow cloning, with a notable caveat: Hwang failed to provide scientifically verifiable data for the research, giving only media sessions and photo-ops. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hwang's next claim came only two months later in April 1999, when he announced the cloning of a Korean cow, Jin-i, also without providing any scientifically verifiable data. (wikipedia.org)
  • legislation
  • However, around the world, many countries began producing legislation that forbade human cloning. (scribd.com)
  • Though neither of these attempts were successful, both show that attempts on human cloning will still occur as long as there is no worldwide legislation. (scribd.com)
  • Unfortunately," Cody lamented, "since the U.S. Senate has been unable to pass similar legislation, human cloning is still legal in the United States. (lifelegaldefensefoundation.org)
  • One of Culver's first initiatives was to sign legislation easing limits on types of stem cell research in Iowa. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the years following the Warnock report, proposals were brought forward by the government in the publication of a white paper Human Fertilisation and Embryology: A Framework for Legislation in 1987. (wikipedia.org)
  • They then held a public consultation based on their review of the Act, and following this published a White Paper, Review of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act, within which Government presented its initial proposals to revise the legislation. (wikipedia.org)
  • mice
  • The full relationship of GDF11 to aging-and any possible differences in the action of GDF11 in mice, rats, and humans-is unclear and continues to be researched. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other studies in mice suggest that GDF11 is involved in mesodermal formation and neurogenesis during embryonic development. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2014, peripheral supplementation of GDF11 protein (in mice) was shown to ameliorate the age-related dysfunction of skeletal muscle by rescuing the function of aged muscle stem cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • transplantation
  • Unlike sexual reproduction, during which a new organism is formed when the genetic material of the egg and sperm fuse, in nuclear transplantation cloning there is a single genetic "parent. (stemcellclinic.net)
  • scientists
  • The term cloning is used by scientists to describe many different processes that involve making duplicates of biological material. (stemcellclinic.net)
  • Dr David King, from the campaign group Human Genetics Alert, warned that: 'Scientists have finally delivered the baby that would-be human cloners have been waiting for: a method for reliably creating cloned human embryos. (myinfoline.com)
  • Although the possibility of cloning humans had been the subject of speculation for much of the 20th century, scientists and policy makers began to take the prospect seriously in the mid-1960s. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many nations outlawed it, while a few scientists promised to make a clone within the next few years. (wikipedia.org)
  • refers
  • The second type, therapeutic cloning, refers to cloning for medical benefits. (scribd.com)
  • Specifically, this refers to efforts to culture, for example, skin for the treatment of burns, cornea for cataracts, myocardial cells for myocardial disorders, bone and cartilage for motor disorders, neurocytes for neurological disorders, insulin-secreting cells for diabetes, among others.

  • called an embryo
  • At this stage of development, this cell mass is called an embryo, which is the product of the fertilized egg undergoing cell division and propagation prior to becoming a fetus. (childresearch.net)
