(Canadian Broadcasting Co.) – A global organization of scientists and bioethicists has released updated guidelines for research using stem cells, the so-called “holy grail” of regenerative medicine, stressing that the protection of patients must take precedence as the field continues to rapidly evolve. The guidelines developed by the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) are aimed at assuring both the medical field and the public that research using these powerhouse cells is conducted with scientific and ethical integrity.
