Ethical considerations in chimera research.

Hermerén, Göran LU (2015) In Development 142(1). p.3-5
Abstract
The development of human pluripotent stem cells has opened up the possibility to analyse the function of human cells and tissues in animal hosts, thus generating chimeras. Although such lines of research have great potential for both basic and translational science, they also raise unique ethical issues that must be considered.
