    Limit on Lab-Grown Human Embryos Dropped by Stem Cell Body

    The International Society for Stem Cell Research relaxed the famous 14-day rule on culturing human embryos in its latest research guidelines
    • By Nidhi Subbaraman, Nature magazine on May 27, 2021
    • The international body representing stem-cell scientists has torn up a decades-old limit on the length of time that scientists should grow human embryos in the lab, giving more leeway to researchers who are studying human development and disease.

      Previously, the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) recommended that scientists culture human embryos for no more than two weeks after fertilization. But on 26 May, the society said it was relaxing this famous limit, known as the ‘14-day rule’. Rather than replace or extend the limit, the ISSCR now suggests that studies proposing to grow human embryos beyond the two-week mark be considered on a case-by-case basis, and be subjected to several phases of review to determine at what point the experiments must be stopped...
