U.S. Company claims it cloned humans and made stem cells


www.reuters.com

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A California company said on Thursday it used cloning technology to make five human embryos, with the eventual hope of making matched stem cells for patients.

Stemagen Corp. in La Jolla, California, destroyed the embryos while testing to make sure they were true clones. But the researchers, based at a fertility center, said they believed their ready source of new human eggs would make their venture a success.

Other experts were skeptical about the claims, published in the journal Stem Cells. If verified, the team would be the first to prove they have cloned human beings as a source of stem cells, the master cells of the body.

Not sure if this is true or not, but if so...WOW. I didn't think we were even CLOSE full cloning of the human genome yet.

Thoughts?

Back up to the top. I see it's being reposted.

I'm suprised this hasn't garnered more discussion.
