China breeds ‘autistic’ GM monkeys
Cruel experiment widely criticised
- In the first experiment, 53 embryos were transferred into 18 surrogate females. Nine became pregnant and produced eight live monkeys and four stillbirths.
- In the second experiment 105 embryos were transferred into 36 surrogate females. This time only 7 females became pregnant and gave birth to 9 monkeys; only 2 survived.
