High quality clinical grade human embryonic stem cell lines derived from fresh discarded embryos


The present study, for the first time, reports the successful derivation of highest-quality clinical-grade hESC lines from fresh poor-quality surplus human embryos generated in a GMP-grade IVF laboratory. The availability of hESC lines of this status represents an important step towards more widespread application of regenerative medicine therapies.
