By Alan J. Holland, Andrew Johnson

Advanced biomedical recommendations reminiscent of genetic engineering are actually used commonly in animal comparable study and improvement. because the speed of improvement has quickened, there was growing to be public nervousness concerning the moral concerns concerned. Animal Biotechnology and Ethics attracts jointly in a single publication the various major subject matters and matters that have emerged within the fresh debates surrounding biotechnology as utilized to animals. With contributions from authors of many various viewpoints, the topic is given a radical and balanced therapy.
between these to whom the ebook can be of specific curiosity are practitioners of animal biotechnology, and people whose curiosity lies in assessing its credentials, resembling philosophers and social or political scientists. It additionally has greatly to curiosity policy-makers and strain teams, in addition to extra basic readers. The powerful chapters at the criminal and regulatory framework will make it valuable to these inquisitive about advising on corporation coverage, patenting or litigation.

The main concerns of the public rest with the genetic manipulation of animals, including humans. This is increasingly used in medical science, and is likely to become important in clinical practice over the next decade. The three major technologies that merit discussion when Genetic manipulation 29 considering the medical use of animal biotechnology are: transgenic animals, knock-out animals and somatic gene transfer. These are discussed in more detail in Chapter 2; only a brief overview of the general principles is given here.

Liposomes may offer a means of introducing DNA into cells, without the disadvantage of stimulating an immune response. 6 EX VIVO TRANSFER The molecular challenges in modifying cells in culture are similar to those in making similar changes in embryos or embryonic stem cells. The greater limitation is in being able to isolate and maintain in culture a population of cells that retain the ability to colonize those tissue(s) which lack the effects of the deficient gene. , 1994). The population has been studied as a potential means to treat cancers of this system, haematological disorders, and immune and metabolic diseases.
