Ministry of Health of the United States turned to the government with a proposal to abolish the moratorium on scientific experiments on crossing humans and animals. Researchers propose to allow hybridization experiments on human stem cells, and animal embryos, so that by the resulting chimeras were used pi testing new drugs for growing human organs. It is reported by the press-service agency on the site National Institutes of Health.
The initiative has a substantial reservation. Experiments, as a result of which the animal may appear to human cells, will be banned. A grafting human stem cells into animal embryos will be carried out only at the initial stage of the experiment.
American genetics promise a major breakthrough in modern medicine, if this idea will get support from the government. However, the views of leading experts in this field is not so unanimous.
