UK Gives The OK On Human-Animal Embryo Research

British authorities have approved the use of animal eggs to create human stem cells. This means that researchers can refine their techniques on stem cell research by practicing first on animal eggs.

The Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority granted two one-year licenses to two institutions which can conduct research using mixed human-animal embryos. Britain requires all research involving human eggs and embryos to first be approved by the authority.
