Stem cell volunteers overwhelm Korean center website

The Seoul, Korea World Stem Cell Hub (WSCH), led by the veterinarian/cloner, Dr. Wu Suk Hwang, announced yesterday that applications would be taken for volunteers to be subjects in cloning research on Parkinson’s and paralysis. Although only 100 subjects are to be chosen, response was overwhelming – at least for the website.

3000 people presented at the Center, according to the Chosen (Korea) News. The website crashed (or was severely slow)after only 5 minutes, however. It’s estimated that there were over 50,000 attempts to access the site.

Please note that the news reports and the WSCH spokespersons call the technique “cloning.”

Hopefully, recent reports concerning adult stem cells, from brain tissue, bone marrow and umbilical cord cells will supplement – and replace – the hype and hope surrounding cloned embryonic stem cells for neurological disease.
