"Cloning research has been said to be one of the world’s ten
great technologies achieved in 2000. A number of Asian
countries are pioneers in human cloning research. The source
of the material for cloning research has raised ethical
questions. Although most of the counties in Asia and the Pacific
have passed laws prohibiting the implantation of cloned human
embryos for reproductive purposes, embryonic stem (ES) cell
research has drawn special attention for undertaking
revolutionary treatment of disease, in China, Japan, Singapore,
Thailand and Malaysia. Regulations concerning stem cell
research differ from nation to nation in Asia-Pacific region.
Guidelines regarding the reproductive and therapeutic cloning
are discussed. Freedom of research and discovery for the
benefit of humankind must be respected but unethical scientific
adventurism also needs to be checked. Biotechnological
advancement in 21st century in this line may challenge us to
rethink and redraw the moral boundaries of the United Nations
Declaration on Human Cloning. "
