A pro-life group called off its year-long boycott of Pepsi products Monday after the soft-drink giant provided assurances it would no longer use an aborted fetal-cell line to develop flavor enhancers.
So far, researchers using aborted fetal cell lines haven't been able to cure paralysis or reverse the effects of Parkinson's disease, but they may be able to make diet sodas taste better.
"When they said they would not use HEK cell lines in their most recent letter - well, that is the hallmark for Senomyx research. So that was majorly different than what they had said in the past," she explained.
"Mr. Boykas acknowledged that their discussions forced them to examine their own corporate policy that had been in place for years but 'may not have been fully understood' by everyone," Mrs. Vinnedge said.
