NOTICE:  NOT-OD-02-007

Office of the Director, NIH

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces the withdrawal of those 
sections of the NIH Guidelines for Research Using Human Pluripotent Stem 
Cells, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-01-003.html, 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-00-050.html, that pertain to 
research involving human pluripotent stem cells derived from human embryos 
that are the result of in vitro fertilization, are in excess of clinical 
need, and have not reached the stage at which the mesoderm is formed.  
The President has determined the criteria that allow Federal funding for 
research using existing embryonic stem cell lines 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-02-005.html.  Thus, 
the NIH GUIDELINES as they relate to human pluripotent stem cells derived 
from human embryos are no longer needed.

Inquiries may be directed to:  the Deputy Director for Extramural Research, 
NIH, DDER@nih.gov.
