ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the ethics guidelines for embryonic stem-cell research issued by the U.S. National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine in April 2005. The guidelines follow the position that the cloning of humans for reproductive purposes should be banned but research using stem cells to study diseases and develop new treatments should proceed. The guidelines contain detailed recommendations regarding donor recruitment and informed consent and describe how stem cells should be characterized, handled, transferred, and stored. They limit the creation of some kinds of chimeras and urge caution on introducing human embryonic stem cells into the brains of nonhuman primates.
