UK High Court finds cloning loophole:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A row has erupted in the UK over human cloning following a UK High Court ruling which said that cloning, whether therapeutic or reproductive, can be conducted in the UK without a licence. The court ruled that embryos created by cell nuclear transfer (cloning), as opposed to those created by sperm and egg, are not regulated under UK legislation. The Department of Health plans to appeal against the decision and bring in primary legislation to ban human cloning, while Europe is also tackling the ethics of this subject.
