Xenotransplantation: A European Perspective

Jon D. Richmond

A transnational approach is clearly the best way for the ethical and public health issues surrounding xenotransplantation to be discussed and coordinated policies formulated. However, the inertia involved in such processes, at a time of developments in the research underpinning xenotransplantation, conspire to ensure that there is always likely to be a lag between technical progress and regulatory developments. Although individual regions and nations are under pressure to address some of these issues, local and regional policy development must not lose sight of the need for a global strategy.
