In Vitro Fertilization: MRC Tests the Climate
Nature. 1982 Nov 25-Dec 1; 300(5890): 309.
It is reported that Britain's Medical Research Council has published guidelines for MRC-supported research involving human embryos obtained through in vitro fertilization. In ethics committee-approved projects, researchers may use deliberately fertilized ova or, with parents' consent, fertilized ova left over from therapeutic programs. In vitro culture of human embryos is permitted only up to the implantation stage. Conditions are also set for experiments on interspecies fertilization and on freezing of embryos. Concern over physician and public reception of these guidelines has been expressed by the British Medical Association. (KIE abstract)
