The International Society for Stem Cell Research describes major principles that should guide ethical stem cell research.
Human embryonic stem (ES) cells are valuable for biomedicine, but differing cultural, political, legal, and religious perspectives are potential barriers to international collaboration in this fledgling field. Recognizing the need for scientists to act transparently, to serve the public interest, and to preserve public trust, the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) convened a task force to formulate guidelines for human ES cell research. The ISSCR guidelines were written by scientists, ethicists, and legal experts from 14 countries (1).
The ISSCR guidelines encompass the core values put forth by the Committee on Guidelines for Human ES Cell Research of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (U.S. NAS) (2) and the Regulations of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (3), and acknowledge thoughtful governmental regulations already in place in several countries, particularly that of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority of the United Kingdom (4). The ISSCR is the principal scientific society for stem cell scientists and transcends institutional, regional, and national political boundaries.... 2
