The court has clarified that the federal law which disallowed payment for donated organs did not include stem cells extracted from blood.  

"The statute does not prohibit compensation for donations of blood and the substances in it, which include peripheral blood stem cells," Judge Andrew J. Kleinfeld said.

Compensation will now be allowed in the western states coming under the Ninth Circuit.
