NIH Approves the Consent for Baby Fae, or Does It?
Hastings Center Report. 1985 Apr; 15(2): 2.
Levine summarizes portions of the report submitted by a National Institutes of Health (NIH) committee after its visit to Loma Linda University Medical Center, site of the Baby Fae baboon heart transplant. The particulars of the parents' consent to the procedure were of special interest to the site visit team, which concluded that the informed consent document had shortcomings but that the consent process was satisfactory. Both the NIH and Loma Linda officials agreed that, before a second transplant is performed, all information on the Baby Fae xenograft should be carefully documented and the informed consent document should be revised to correct inadequacies.
