Scientists may purchase fetal tissue from approved sources before the ban
The Biden administration lifted restrictions on the use of fetal tissue for medical research on Friday, overturning the regulations imposed by President Donald J. Trump in 2019.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has issued new rules with its English acronyms, enabling scientists to use tissues derived from selective abortion to research and develop treatments for diseases such as diabetes, cancer, AIDS and Covid-19.
The Department of Health and Human Services, which is in charge of the National Institutes of Health, has basically restored the guidelines issued during the Obama administration. The agency said in an email sent this Saturday that NIH “will manage and supervise research using human fetal tissue in accordance with the policies and procedures prior to the effective date of the ban in June 2019.”
According to an email sent to scientists by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), scientists can purchase fetal tissue from sources that were approved before the ban, and all projects approved before the Trump administration imposed restrictions “will be restored without Further review”.
Dr. Mike McCune, an HIV expert at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and an emeritus professor at the University of California, San Francisco, said: “That’s great. However, he warned that it may take a while. Resume investigation.
Processing fetal tissue is a skill that requires specialization, and many scientists with this technology have left the field. “People with decades of experience have to find another job. “All of these must be restructured to start over, but they will do it. ”
