Statement by Mike Leavitt, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Regarding the Success of Adult Stem-Cell Reprogramming
It is heartening to learn of the advances in adult stem-cell reprogramming reported Tuesday. These efforts are clearly consistent with the President's policy of encouraging research while respecting ethical boundaries. The research community should be commended for these efforts to develop promising alternatives to human embryonic stem-cell research.
