This is the first volume to comprehensively discuss the ethical, regulatory, and social aspects of xenotransplantation research.
Organized into four parts, Xenotransplantation begins by examining ethical issues around informed consent of the potential xenograft recipient, the major ethical issues encountered when doing this research on pigs, and allocation issues. Part two examines regulatory aspects from a global perspective, specifically from three major regions of the world doing xenotransplantation research currently, of which include the United States, Western Europe, and Asia. Following this, part three describes religious aspects of xenotransplantation amongst the major world religions, including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism. The book closes with an analysis of quantitative and qualitative studies conducted by the editors that assess the public’s perception of xenotransplantation.
Featuring original data collected by the editors, this book is an instrumental resource for all clinicians involved in the research and practice of xenotransplantation.
