01662018After the authorities in Great Britain for the first time in Europe allowed the modification of the human embryo genome using CRISPR / Cas9 technology in early February, the country's Ministry of Internal Affairs published a guide for researchers involved in growing human organs in animals or using hybrid creatures to study the treatment of human diseases.

The document was prepared on the basis of consultations with the Office for the Use of Human Tissues, the Department of Fertilization and Human Embryology, and the Academy of Medical Sciences of Great Britain.

The manual deals with the fact that the experiments in this area were divided into categories according to the degree of their ambiguity. Low priority will henceforth be given to research that has already become routine, such as using mice with human cancers to study the effects of drugs.

High priority is given to experiments for which it is necessary to prove their scientific value and ethical acceptability. In this case, we are talking about experiments on primates, transplantation of tissues of the human brain in animals or the creation of animals resembling the appearance of a man.

Such experiments will continue to require a rationale for what their health benefits are.

As a result, scientists will be able to experiment on a legitimate basis on animals that have a brain “similar to a human one”, or using human eggs and spermatozoids in animals.

Simplification of the rules for the creation of hybrids of humans and animals will make Britain a world center for such research that can lead to major discoveries aimed at eliminating the shortage of donor organs, notes The Times.

The publication explains that new technologies will help in the future to grow organs for individual orders in sheep or pigs.
