There is a report in Cell which I don't have) that Neanderthal DNA has been
isloated. The short note I ran across at:

said that it shows that Neanderthals left no descendants. I will say that
if this work holds up to scrutiny, it does not impact the humanity or lack
there of for the Neanderthal. None of the inhabitants of the Norse colony
on Greenland have left any descendants on today's earth either nor did the
children killed on the Titanic leave any descendants, but they were fully human.
