Deals with the first successful attempt on creating an embryonic stem cell line from cloned human cells. Advantage of the technique that involves transferring the nucleus of a somatic cell into an enucleated oocyte; Recruitment of women to undergo ovarian hyperstimulation to produce oocytes; Approach used by scientists to test the ability of the cell line to differentiate.
