2011-10-19 05:05:48

The European Union Court of Justice (ECJ) on Tuesday banned patents on any stem-cell process that includes the destruction of a human embryo, a ruling some fear will have negative repercussions for medical research. The ECJ became involved in the controversial issue after German scientist Oliver Bruestle was denied a patent on a technique to create nerve cells from human embryonic stem cells. Bruestle filed an appeal with the German Federal Court of Justice, which sought a ruling from...

Women donating their eggs for use in fertility clinics are typically financially compensated for the time and discomfort involved in the procedure. However, guidelines established by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in 2005 state that women who donate their eggs for use in stem cell research should not be compensated, although the procedures they undergo are the same. In the October 7th issue of Cell Stem Cell, researchers at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) and the Department of...
