The journal Stem Cells® has announced that scientists were able to derive pluripotent human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) from non-viable early human embryos.

The team, led by Professor Miodrag Stojkovic, derived hESCs using surplus and donated embryos that had stopped their cleavage.

The scientists demonstrated that these non-viable embryos could be used under suitable laboratory conditions for derivation of hESCs and for study of early human development.

This progress, published in Stem Cells®, encourages other scientists to perform hESC research using both viable and non-viable pre-implantation embryos in their attempt to understand and fight debilitating diseases. This article is freely available (Open Access) online
