South Korean and U.S. researchers said on February 12, 2004 that they had cloned a human embryo and extracted from it sought-after cells called embryonic stem cells. The experiment, the first published report of cloned human stem cells, means so-called therapeutic cloning is no longer a theory but a reality. Supporters of medical cloning say it can transform medicine, offering tailored and highly effective treatments for diseases ranging from Parkinson's to diabetes. They say it could eventually lead to grow-your-own organ transplants. A microscopic 10x view of a colony of undifferentiated human embryonic stems cells are seen in this undated file photo.
