This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved the first two licences for research into embryonic stem cells. The news comes less than 48 hours after the House of Lords gave qualified support for such work to go ahead in the UK under current legislation. The report published on Wednesday by the House of Lords Select Committee on Stem Cell Research also makes a number of recommendations aimed at ensuring that the UK is able to enforce the law, including the creation of the world's first stem cell bank.
