Maverick gynaecologist, Severino Antinori, has told a British Sunday newspaper that he plans to start human reproductive cloning trials later this year. According to the report in the Sunday Times, eight British women and their partners have volunteered to take part in the trial.

Antinori says he has a total of 200 couples and 20 professionals from around the world taking part. Although no venue for the trial has been announced, it will apparently start in November. Antinori is due to make an announcement about the trial at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington on Thursday.
