Scientists cited four main reasons for their problems accessing human embryonic stem cell
lines: difficulty obtaining material transfer agreements, failure to acquire research approval from internal institutional oversight committees, cell line owners that were unwilling to share and federal policy considerations.
BioTime previously announced the inclusion of ESI-014 and ESI-017 to the NIH Human Embryonic Stem Cell
Currently, publicly funded stem cell research in the United States is severely restricted by the Bush administration's prohibition on the derivation of human embryonic stem cells
using federal funds.
These Japanese advances, combined with Jun Takahashi's suggestion that human cultures of ES cell differentiation in dopamine neurons will be possible, indicate that more researchers are stepping up to the line: they want to explore the potential of human embryonic stem cells
Because of the book's timing, it does not address the Bush Administration's policy on human embryonic stem cell
research and reactions to it.
WARF has always believed that Geron has unique technology that holds promise in bringing effective human embryonic stem cell
therapies to patients in need.
Indications are that human embryonic stem cell
research has the potential to lead to life-saving breakthroughs in major diseases" such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, spinal cord injuries, stroke, burns, heart disease and diabetes, and could reduce the dependency on organ donation and transplantation.
Stem cells produced this way would be identical to the human embryonic stem cells
that currently must be harvested from embryos.

announced that four human embryonic stem (hES) cell lines: ESI-035, ESI-049, ESI-051 and ESI-053, developed by a BioTime subsidiary have been approved by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for inclusion in the NIH Human Embryonic Stem Cell
Strong support from the Obama administration appeared to clear the way for largely unfettered federal funding of human embryonic stem cell
London, Aug 24 (ANI): A US district court has issued a temporary injunction against expanded federal funding of human embryonic stem cell
research, which was part of a new policy outlined by the Obama administration last year.
