dc.description.abstractFor research on human physiology and pathologies the most relevant results come from human tissue, necessitating the creation of more tissue banks. This need is acknowledged by academics, clinical researchers and the pharmaceutical industry. For academics, the major obstacles to establishing tissue banks are the somewhat cumbersome ethical procedures, a perceived lack of demand for human tissue and insufficient knowledge about supply and its demographic differences. The causes are inter-related: confusing and time-consuming ethics applications cause some researchers to avoid human tissue work and expend research efforts on animal studies, leading to a false presumption of a lower level of demand for human tissue. Lack of knowledge about why rates of donation are low, and why there are differences in donation for different organs, leads to an uncertainty about supply. This too poses a problem for tissue bank establishment, and further research into this area is required.en
