ABSTRACT
This article reports on a plan in Great Britain where women who donate surplus eggs for stem cell research will be partially reimbursed for the cost of their in vitro fertilisaion. This is the first study by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) that will pay participants. The MCR is funding a research proposal from the North East England Stem Cell Institute to find ways of improving the efficiency of therapeutic cloning. The research will depend on a steady supply of eggs to work on and its is hoped that this measure will help provide them.
