ABSTRACT
The authors present informational regarding stem cell research. Details are provided relating to the potential for use of human adult cells to replace embryos as a source of stem cells. The authors note that the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of increasing federal funding for stem cell research and said that they would override an expected veto from U.S. President George W. Bush. Researcher Konrad Hochedlinger is mentioned as advising caution in the use of the new technique.
