Stem cells

A summary of where we stand in the U.S. with stem cell research and information on the guidelines issued jointly by the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council in this NEJM article.

Nothing too new if you are up on the issues, but a good summary. I didn't realize that the new guidelines prohibit payment to women donation oocytes (women who donate for fertility purposes are routinely paid.).
