Stem Cell Funding Victory

A US judge dismisses a case against federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research.

Today a US district court judge ruled that federal funding for research with human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) is in compliance with US law—signaling what may be the end of a long and bitter fight for the legitimacy of taxpayer-funded hESC research.

It all began in August 2009, when two scientists sued the Obama administration following the expansion of federal funding to include hESC research. They argued that the guidelines set by the National Institutes of Health for obtaining stem cells from the unused embryos of fertility clinics violated a federal law passed in 1996, which prohibits federal funding when an embryo has been destroyed for research purposes. In August 2010, US District Judge Royce Lamberth called for the halting of all funds for hESC research until the matter was settled—a decision that was overturned this past April by the US Court of Appeals.

Now, nearly a year after his original ruling, Lamberth has dismissed the law suit, citing that he was bound by the reasoning of the US Court of Appeals, NPR reports.

It is a Victory but not the win of the life war

From the beginning, I
shall tell you that I am a Christian Orthodox researcher, which believes in
Assisted Evolution. Everybody is free to orient the research in his own
direction, but I suppose is the time when the scientists shall know that is a
big difference between the stem cell feed back in human body and in the beast,
because the animals have a specific life-program and the man is a free-judge.

It is known the stem
cell crises - see *Stem cell centrosome misorientation* - University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor - 1st EMBO Conference on Centrosomes and Spindle Pole
Bodies EMBL Heidelberg, September 12-16, 2008.

According to my
research *Adam mtDNA and Eve mtDNA theory*, published in Romania, all the
information about the body malady are double memorized: local on Eve mtDNA,
situated in the target cell of the sickness organ, and centralized on Adam
mtDNA, situated only in xiphoid process (metasternum). That why I suppose it is
necessary in human medicine, stem cell research shall be oriented to the personalized
human spare parts, obtained in accordance with the person's traits versus his specific
past behaviour information.
