Embryonic stem cells from unfertilized eggs: new or old work?

AP reports: Scientists say they've created embryonic stem cells by stimulating unfertilized eggs, a significant step toward producing transplant tissue that's genetically matched to women.

The work, published online by the journal Cloning and Stem Cells, is reported by scientists from Lifeline Cell Technology of Walkersville, Md., and from Moscow.

IPBiz questions: isn't this advance what Hwang Woo Suk did in his FIRST paper to Science? After all the smoke cleared (that Hwang did NOT do SCNT), it was concluded that he did create a stem cell line from an egg.

Look to a May 1, 2006 post on IPBiz.
