Medical Applications of Fetal Tissue Transplantation
JAMA. 1990 Jan 26; 263(4): 565-570.
This report by the American Medical Association's Council on Scientific Affairs and Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs reviews the data on fetal tissue transplantation in animals and in specific clinical disorders such as diabetes and Parkinson's disease, surveys the legal and ethical issues surrounding fetal tissue transplants, and provides ethical guidelines for the use of fetal tissue for transplantation. The report concludes that further research is necessary to determine the value of fetal tissue transplantation, and that ethical guidelines should separate as much as possible a woman's decision to abort from her decision to donate fetal tissue for transplantation.
