I think the researchers simply placed the telomerase-transgenic cells into
autologous animals and noted that no tumors were formed as a result.
Technically, this is:
"in vivo data demonstrating that telomerase
expression in normal cells results in cellular immortality but does not
induce cancer-associated physical and biochemical characteristics."
Nothing is stated regarding the creation of an animal engineered to
constitutively express a system of telomere maintenance in mitotic cells.
This would be huge news, and would be directly stated in a press release . .
