  • Instead of implanting the resulting embryo into a female host, as would be done in reproductive cloning, scientists destroy the embryo so that researchers can extract the stem cells. (thenakedscientists.com)
  • 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)
  • Boston - In a study published in the July issue of Nature Biotechnology, available on the internet June 3, researchers from Children s Hospital Boston and colleagues demonstrated that laboratory-engineered tissues created from heart, skeletal, and renal cells cloned from cows, then transplanted back into the animals, developed into functional tissues and caused no signs of rejection.

  • San Antonio and Honolulu researchers make important discoveries about point mutation rates in cloned mouse foetuses Thursday, 26 March 2009 Germ cells, the cells which give rise to a mammal's sperm or eggs, exhibit a five to ten-fold lower rate of spontaneous point mutations than adult somatic cells, which give rise to the body's remaining cell types, tissues and organs.

  • research
  • Therapeutic cloning research, when supported and encouraged could open up a number of potentials for medical science. (nyln.org)
  • So far, medical research conducted on therapeutic cloning showed low success rate. (nyln.org)
  • But failure to pass Brownback/Landrieu may end up doing just this, as resources will inevitably be diverted to the unproven and highly speculative field of human research cloning and away from proven and further developed research avenues that are already producing benefits to people. (cloninginformation.org)
  • genetic
  • Because a random cell population exhibits a low mutation rate overall and only one cell from that population is used for cloning, the likelihood is remote that the cell chosen to be cloned will transfer a genetic mutation to its cloned offspring. (blogspot.com)
  • disease
  • Therapeutic cloning has also helped people who have disease in their bone-marrow. (smore.com)
  • This article is intended to help Christians gain an understanding of what therapeutic cloning really is and how it may be used to treat disease, as well as to equip them to evaluate their position on this issue by providing them with both an understanding of the science and the truths of Scripture as they relate to this technology. (cbhd.org)
  • Studies on the use of therapeutic cloning to treat brain disease, heart disease, paralysis and many other diseases are also underway. (nyln.org)
  • Cloning has not cured any disease in any animal, let alone in human beings. (cloninginformation.org)
  • treatments
  • This layer is crucial to protecting the brain from foreign substances, but also blocks some potentially therapeutic treatments from entering the brain via orally administered drugs. (michaeljfox.org)
  • offers
  • The paper offers the first direct demonstration that cloning does not lead to an increase in the frequency of point mutations. (blogspot.com)
  • produce
  • I think my main gripe is the fact that for the narrator Kathy to be in her early 30s during the 1990s, the technology used to produce the clones must have been available by the early 1960s - something I know is not the case. (wordpress.com)
  • believe
  • The clients are led to believe that the clones (aka Agnates) are kept in a permanent vegetative state, but this is not true. (wordpress.com)
