Double triumph in stem cell quest

... assured them. Verlinsky's method would have huge advantages if it really does work. Obtaining the large numbers of fresh human eggs needed for therapeutic cloning is not possible for legal reasons in many countries and is very expensive in countries where it is legal, such as the US. By contrast, there is a v...
