    Animal-human embryo research is approved

    Experiments to create Britain’s first embryos that combine human and animal material will begin within months after a government watchdog gave its approval yesterday to two research teams to carry out the controversial work.

    Scientists at King’s College London, and the University of Newcastle will inject human DNA into empty eggs from cows to create embryos known as cytoplasmic hybrids, which are 99.9 per cent human in genetic terms.

    Lyle Armstrong, who leads the Newcastle group, said: “Finding better ways to make human embryonic stem cells is the long-term objective of our work and understanding reprogramming is central to this. Cow eggs seem to be every bit as good at doing this job as human eggs so it makes sense to use them since they are much more readily available, but it is important to stress that we will only use them as a scientific tool and we need not worry about cells derived from them ever being used to treat human diseases.”
    Strange stuff to this layman.
