Paralysed actor Christopher Reeve has told delegates at a spinal-injury forum in Sydney, Australia, that some scientists have begun human trials involving therapeutic cloning that could be used to help repair spinal injuries. Reeve declined to give details, saying that such advances needed to go through the proper channels.
