To solve the problem of immune incompatibility, nuclear transfer has been deeply developed. The successful development of animal nuclear transfer and the requirements from regenerative medicine and drug therapy promote the research of human specific embryonic stem cells. This review discusses the research progress of human somatic cell nuclear transfer and obstacles and challenges of interspecies nuclear transfer.

Key words: human somatic cell nuclear transfer, interspecies nuclear transfer, embryonic stem cell
