I am sure this will only succeed in further stirring the fire surrounding cloning controversies.
CLONING CURE HOPE
Scientists have said cloning technology can be used to treat brain diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
They used the controversial technique in tests to create cells that were implanted into the brains of mice with a Parkinson's-like illness.The
treatment produced a "robust alleviation" of symptoms, said the researchers.
It could mark a significant step towards developing new ways of tackling degenerative and incurable brain disorders.
Therapeutic cloning opens the way to implanting replacement tissue into patients without it being rejected by their immune systems.
