ABSTRACT
The article presents developments in the human embryonic stem-cell research of Advanced Cell Technology Corp. in Worcester, Massachusetts. In October 2003, Robert Lanza, vice-president for research says thirteen of sixteen cloned human eggs activated by transfer of a somatic nucleus had developed to morulae, a more mature stage but researchers were unable to derive stem-cell lines.
