Transplanting Human Tissue

Ethics, Policy and Practice

Edited by Stuart J. Youngner, Martha W. Anderson, and Renie Schapiro

This book is the first comprehensive exploration of the burgeoning American tissue transplantation industry. It explains the organization and technical developments in the tissue industry, the expanding clinical uses of donated human skin, bones, ligaments and other musculoskeletal tissue, and how the industry is regulated. This explanation provides a background for exploring the ethical issues of commercialization of body parts, informed consent for donor families, and good stewardship for the tissue industry.
