AbstractThis voluminous publication contains the proceedings of the symposium held by the Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) in Kuwait during the period 15-17 January 1985 on the beginning and the end of human life. Many Muslim religious scholars and physicians submitted papers in this symposium and participated in the discussions. Within the broad lines of discussing the beginning and the end of human life, the participants debated a long array of issues such as the ethico-religious status of the embryo, embryo research, abortion and brain death. The publication is divided into two parts: one on issues pertaining to the beginning of human life and the other one on issues with relevance to its end. Each part is appended by final recommendations endorsed by the participants in the symposium.

DIANA anomalies: criteria for generating human pluripotent stem cells without embryosSuarez, Antoine; Lang, Matthias; Huarte, Joachim (2011-07-12)Ethical concerns are motivating the search for alternative methods to obtain pluripotent stem cells without destroying human embryos. The supporters of these methods stress the importance of ensuring that the biological entities used in these alternative methods are not "disabled or sick human embryos." In this article the authors argue that biological entities bearing anomalies or alterations that directly inhibit the appearance of neural activity (DIANA anomalies) share the moral status of human organisms fulfilling the clinical criteria for brain death. By contrast, in the absence of DIANA anomalies, the moral status of a person cannot be denied.
