Glasgow company starts clinical trials using neural stem cells from abortion victim

25 November 2010

Reneuron, a Scottish company, has started clinical trials using neural stem cells taken from an aborted foetus. The trials are aimed at repairing the brains of stroke victims. [Reuters, 16 November] Dr James L. Sherley, a leading American stem cell expert who advises SPUC, commented: “Even if bone fide pure neural stem cells were available from ethically consented donors, why would any competent researcher suggest that cells taken from one specific spot in the brain could work anywhere in the brain or spinal cord?"
