Japanese Stem Cell Discovery could lead to Human Cloning without the need for Humans

A study by Japanese researchers involving the use of stem cells to create eggs and sperm, and fertilized eggs as a result, has been announced.

The scientific effort to achieve this result has been afoot for many a year, and the Japanese researchers efforts have been attained in mice for the time being.

The next step would be to try to attain these results in humans.

The team of researchers from Kyoto University, have established that the eggs can be replicated from stem cells, and even the sperm as well.

A summit on the issue is scheduled for December 3rd thru 5th, 2012, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) has announced that the mice egg stem cell researchers from the Kyoto University Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) will be co-organizers of the event.

If this result can be achieved in humans, it may allow women the chance to become pregnant later in life, without the inherent problems already associated with advanced age proliferation reduced to some degree.

Ten percent of women in their child bearing years are hindered by problems becoming pregnant, whether it be a male problem of low sperm count, or just achieving full term status.

Attempts at bolstering collaborative reproduction is the intended result, as 33% of all couples fail in their attempts at live birth currently.

More to the point, this new technology, if attained in humans, opens up a world of possibilities, and a whole other set of questions.

With the recent announcement that several of the hardest Cancer types may be able to be cured by examining each individuals DNA strand and then prescribing a personal curative approach for each cancer patient, could this technique, coupled with the stem cell research, allow for complete cloning of humans, with perfect DNA strands to allow for the absence of disease and other typically human ailments and negative life expectancies?

It is a slippery slope that we probably should not descend to, but it has already happened, and there is no turning back now.

Many groups of people were against stem cell research to begin with, the church being one.

President George W. Bush was another, and during his administration, he outlawed the practice, allowing only limited research.

“Those that cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” a quote from George Santayana comes to mind.

Adolf Hitler and the Nazi’s were trying to create the master race of human beings during the 1930’s and 40’s, and if he had this technology then, well we all might be goose-stepping right now.

It would appear that the only thing needed for cloning of humans without the aid of a female host would be a synthetic womb, a place for the DNA modified, stem cell created egg and sperm, fertilized in a Petri dish, to be implanted.

Hard to believe, but true.

    The greatest thing about this discovery is that same sex male couples can have children, that are their DNA match (with the use of the womb of a surrogate Mother). Children should come from love between to adults, that want to be responsible for raising & taking care of them into their own adulthood. Life is the gift of God, how we creatively bring it fourth is in our hands, whether it be naturally & through the wonderful work of Science.

    It was Bill Clinton who brought us the very first living, breathing, but unthinking human clone….It is Al Gore.

    scientist trying to make mankind into triple helix based dna .
    This will turn men into “beasts” an attempt by man to avoid the
    need for God and imortality through genetic manipulation rather
    than salvation by Christ and heaven.

    Are you all dense? The US has patented a chimera a few years back. If this is being reported now, then the military has the 6th generation fighting man! It gives a whole new meaning for grunt.

      I’m not dense Bill, however most folks don’t know of these things, and publishing content about them without a frame of reference, i.e. the Japanese research discovery, would lead the content to go unnoticed and make it invisible. You have to know when to publish content Bill, as to do so in a manner that makes it irrelevant from the first word will not educate the general public, and is a waste of time. The main focus of Newspapers is education, whether you know it or not, and you have to strike while the iron is hot, or face obscurity.

        The thought of an artificial womb is not a new thought, but perhaps a scary one. I don’t mean to discount it, but the fact is, soon scientists will have a method to create human life without Parents being involved. What about military applications for this technology. Look what the military did with the splitting of the atom. Scary, very scary!

    Sorry meant to say “should we expect” not “are we expected”

    Has anyone even stopped to consider that it may not be a good idea for a woman to have children later in life? Are we expected a young child who may not be emotionally mature or financially secure to take care of an aging parent?

    First of all there’re will always be a need for human, in case cloning is established, you know, you kinda need a surrogate mother.

    Regarding the question if couples of the same sex could use this…It might be possible, for males at leat, but for females it could be tricky as they don’t have a Y chromossome so they don-t have the genetic make up to develop testis, sou it would require genetic manipulation to insert the necessary genes, and I don’t think that’s ever going to happen for humans

      Well, once the first one is born, you can use the much superior stem cell from that child, eliminating the need for some humans. As far as women and the same sex couple, everybody has a mother, no.

    yeah but, yo…. you…you didn’t build that! Oh,I guess you DID build that.

    Probably invented by a Japanese female scientist to avoid sex

    I wonder…If instead of cloning this could be used to create a “sperm” and “egg” from two different people and then instead of cloning swap them to create a living breathing human. I ask because the thought of a same sex couple having a legitimate biological child comes to mind.

      Your assessment of this fact is one that i had thought of, but haven’t examined as of yet. If you would like to write me an article about this issue, or give me your thoughts on this issue, email me from our contact window, and i will handle it. Thank You. Jim Donahue
