Bee Reports Tersely on CIRM Research Standards

The Sacramento Bee calls protection of women who donate eggs for stem cell research the "toughest ethical issue" facing the California stem cell agency.

Reporter Laura Mecoy wrote the story on Tuesday's approval of the proposed research standards by the agency's Standards Working Group. Her brief article also had this from Zach Hall, president of CIRM:
"We are going beyond existing standards. It becomes a much bigger issue with the South Korean debacle . . . Now the big need in the research field is to try to figure how to make this technology work in humans, and egg donation will be the key."
