Cell biologists hail stem cell decision

BETHESDA, MD, JULY 28, 2011⎯The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) applauds the decision of Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (DC) to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the U.S. National Institutes of Health guidelines on funding human embryonic stem cell research (hESC).

Judge Lamberth agreed with the appeals court's finding that NIH can interpret the Dickey-Wicker amendment to allow federal funding for research on human embryonic stem cells, but not on their derivation. He notes that the legislation's definition of "research" is ambiguous. The judge also dismissed the plaintiffs' claims that NIH failed to respond to relevant and significant public comments. The plaintiffs have 60 days in which to file for appeal to the DC Circuit Court.
