Report by the Pres. Council on Bioethics of an inquiry that was occasioned by another forthcoming Council report on ethical questions in organ transplantation. The two reports are linked ethically: most of the organs procured for transplantation in this country come from deceased donors who have been declared dead in accord with the neurological standard (NS). This report is primarily concerned with a careful analysis of the ethical questions raised by the NS, i.e., the clinical determination of żwhole brain death.ż Since then, the NS has been accepted as one of two valid standards for deter

Non-heart-beating donors (individuals whose deaths result from a cardiopulmonary cause) could potentially be of major importance in reducing the gap between the demand for and available supply of organs for transplantation. Prompted by questions concerning the medical management of such donors -- specifically, whether interventions undertaken to enhance the supply and quality of potentially transplantable organs (i.e., the use of anticoagulants and vasodilators) were in the best interests of donor patients or were instead hastening their deaths -- the U.S. Department of Health and Human Servic

This volume explores how legislation and lawmaking function in developing countries; how legislation specifically contributes to this development; and how lawmaking and legislation can be improved by nations themselves or through donor-assisted projects. Lawmaking and Development combines insight from both scholars and practitioners involved in legal assistance projects in order to address topics such as legal transplantation, legislative quality, linkages between legislation and implementation, and the politics of lawmaking.
