Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research Releases New White Paper, 'Catalyst for Cures: Embryonic Stem Cell Research'

- National Poll Reveals Three-Quarters of Americans Want President-Elect Obama to Deliver on Campaign Commitment to Lift Restrictions on Embryonic Stem Cell Research -

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research (CAMR) today released a white paper, Catalyst For Cures: Embryonic Stem Cell Research, which outlines the views of nine of the nation's leading scientists on the promises and challenges of embryonic stem cell research. In support for the scientific community's call for reversal of the current restrictions on funding for stem cell research, the group also released the results of a national poll conducted this month for CAMR by Opinion Research Corporation indicating that nearly three-quarters (73%) of Americans believe that President-elect Obama should keep his pledge to lift existing federal restrictions on embryonic stem cell research.

Marking the 10th anniversary of the announcements by James Thomson and John Gearhart that each had successfully grown the first human pluripotent stem cell lines in culture, the White Paper proclaims that "with the knowledge gained in the past decade, stem cell research is more promising than ever."

Despite limited funding, scientists have made great strides in using these primary cells to understand what goes wrong in disease and have begun devising promising new therapies for devastating conditions, such as heart disease, spinal cord injury, and diabetes. Conversations with some of the nation's top stem cell researchers -- in academia and industry -- make clear that, with removal of limits on Federal funding, embryonic stem cell research will fulfill its promise in broader ways than originally anticipated.

"It's time for the federal government to support the broad range of stem cell research so that the greatest public benefit can be achieved on the shoulders of the last 10 years'
