The first UK human clone
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 5/22/2005 01:25:00 PM.

A HUMAN embryo has been cloned for the first time in Britain, scientists said last night.

The stem cell research was carried out at Newcastle University.

Experts hope the breakthrough will lead to treatments for diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's or for spinal injuries.

It comes as South Korean researchers reveal they have created the first customised embryonic stem cells.

They are tailored to specific patients in order to overcome immune system rejection.

Yesterday, the Brit boffins praised their Korean counterparts as they revealed they had created an embryo, like the one shown above.

Prof Alison Murdoch and Dr Miodrag Stojkovic said in a joint statement: "The Koreans have shown that these techniques can be successful in humans.

"The promise of new treatments based on stem cell technology is moving nearer to being a realistic possibility.

"During the past nine months, our research has progressed well."

But the research is controversial, with fears it can help create cloned babies. That is banned by law in the UK and offenders risk ten years in jail.

Last night Julia Millington, of the ProLife Alliance, said: "Cloning for research purposes is profoundly unethical.

"The deliberate destruction of human life at any stage of development has no place in a civilised society."
