信不信由你!科学家将在四个月内克隆出第一个人类胚胎。

When researchers made their first clone of an animal, Dolly the Sheep, in 1997, one doctor said: "The genie is out of the bottle." But then he tried to actually create the "genie" -

by making a human clone.

Dr Panayiotis Zavos told the public on October 5 that he could create the first cloned human before the end of the year. He is an expert on human copying and breeding from the University of Kentucky in the United States.

His workers have been stopped from carrying out research in most European Union (欧洲联盟) countries, but Zavos said that fact was not slowing progress.

"It is going well enough so we may try the first production of cloned embryos in the very near future. That is, three or four months from now," Cypriot-born(在塞浦路斯出生的) Zavos said. He moved to the United States over 30 years ago.

Human cloning could, in effect, create a copy of another living or dead person.

But Zavos insisted there was nothing harmful in the project. As an expert on human reproduction, he said he is only interested in helping couples who cannot naturally have babies to have a child.

"We are not interested in cloning people like bin Laden, Michael Jackson (迈克尔·杰克逊) or Michael Jordan (迈克尔·乔丹) ," the doctor added.

"We are only interested in helping a father who does not have the ability to have a biological child of his own."

Zavos said thousands of childless people from all over the world are helping in their research.

He would not say where the research is under way, but indicated that it is in more than one country.
