Hundreds of Human Animal Hybrids Grown in Labs

Scientists have created hundreds of human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories and around the world.

The hybrids have been produced secretively  over the past several years by researchers “looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases”.

The revelation comes just a day after a  committee of scientists warned of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ scenario in  which work on human-animal creations goes too far.

Last night a campaigner against the excesses  of medical research said he was disgusted that scientists were ‘dabbling in the  grotesque’.

Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos,containing  both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction  of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act.

This legalised the creation of a variety of  hybrids, including an animal egg fertilised by a human sperm; ‘cybrids’, in  which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which  human cells are mixed with animal embryos.

Scientists say the techniques can be used to  develop embryonic stem cells which can be used to treat a range of incurable illnesses.

Three labs in the UK – at King’s College  London, Newcastle University and Warwick University – were granted licences to  carry out the research after the Act came into force.

The figure was revealed to crossbench peer  Lord Alton following a Parliamentary question.

He said: ‘I argued in Parliament  against the creation of human- animal hybrids as a matter of principle. None of  the scientists who appeared before us could give us any justification in terms  of treatment.

‘Ethically it can never be justifiable – it  discredits us as a country. It is dabbling in the grotesque.

‘At every stage the justification from  scientists has been: if only you allow us to do this, we will find cures for  every illness known to mankind. This is emotional blackmail.

‘Of the 80 treatments and cures which have  come about from stem cells, all have come from adult stem cells – not embryonic  ones. ‘On moral and ethical grounds  this fails; and on scientific and medical ones too.’

Josephine Quintavalle, of pro-life group  Comment on Reproductive Ethics, said: ‘I am aghast that this is going on and we  didn’t know anything about it.

‘Why have they kept this a secret? If they  are proud of what they are doing, why do we need to ask Parliamentary questions  for this to come to light?

‘The problem with many scientists is that  they want to do things because they want to experiment. That is not a good  enough rationale.’

Earlier this week, a group of leading  scientists warned about ‘Planet of the Apes’ experiments. They called for new  rules to prevent lab animals being given human attributes, for example by  injecting human stem cells into the brains of primates.

But the lead author of their report,   Professor Robin Lovell-Badge, from the Medical Research Council’ s National  Institute for Medical Research, said the scientists were not concerned about  human-animal hybrid embryos because by law these have to be destroyed within 14  days.

He said: ‘The reason for doing these  experiments is to understand more about early human development and come up with  ways of curing serious diseases, and as a scientist I feel there is a moral  imperative to pursue this research.

‘As long as we have sufficient controls – as  we do in this country – we should be proud of the research.’

However, he called for stricter controls on  another type of embryo research, in which animal embryos are implanted with a  small amount of human genetic material.

Human-animal hybrids are also created in  other countries, many of which have little or no regulation.
