The article reports that scientists at Advanced Cell Technology (ACT), who originally claimed that they could extract embryonic stem cells without killing the embryo have admitted that all embryos used in their experiments were killed. The scientists also clarified parts of their article in an online edition of "Nature." They also said that their technique may be successful but the actual conduct of the research ensured the death of the embryos.
