Publishing the findings in today's online issue of Nature, Dr. Robert Lanza, the vice president of U.S. biotech group Advanced Cell Technology said, "There is no rational reason left to oppose this research."

The research team have also mentioned that they were able to produce stem cell cultures by gathering individual cells from newly fertilized embryos without harming it. They explained that this method would be performed on two-days old embryos, after the fertilized egg has undergone the process called blastomeres, or when the egg has divided into eight cells.
