IiiNo animal into which hES cells have been introduced at any stage of development should be allowed to breed

Because stem cell research is subject to a greater degree of public interest and scrutiny than most other kinds of laboratory research, the committee recommends that each institution should maintain through its ESCRO committee a registry of hES cell lines in use and of investigators working in this field and descriptive information on the types of hES cell research in which they are engaged. The purposes of such a registry include facilitating distribution of educational information in light of evolving ethical, legal, or regulatory issues and enabling the institution to respond to public inquiry about the extent of its involvement in hES cell research.
