ABSTRACT
The article reports on the announcement of the U.S. National Institutes of Health that the U.S. Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry will change its name to Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Registry. The name change is a result from an executive order issued by President George W. Bush. The order, which was considered as an attempt to downplay the potential of human embryonic stem cells, requires the exception of the term embryonic from the names of the cell lines that can receive federal research funding.
