ABSTRACT
The article features the news of the creation of human embryonic cells without destroying the embryo. It attracted worldwide media excitement, and later wide criticism for destroying the embryos used in the research. Even the scientific fraternity considered the work and the presentation as ambiguous. However, the editorial of the Nature journal has clarified on the efficiency of the process and even apologized for some of the misunderstandings that the earlier press notes have created.
