Item description for Guide to Safety and Quality Assurance for the Transplantation of Organs, Tissues and Cells (Blood Transfusion) by Council of Europe...
Organ transplantation saves thousands of lives each day. It is in many cases the only available treatment for end-organ failure. The transplantation of tissues and cells offers major therapeutic benefits and improvement of the quality of life, but raises a number of questions of principle.
The Council of Europe is the leading standard-setting institution in the field. It approaches organ transplantation from an ethical and human rights perspective, taking compliance with the principles of non-commercialisation and voluntary donation of substances of human origin as the basis for all ethical concerns in this respect. Its work includes assuring the safety and quality of organs, tissues and cells, meeting the organ shortage, living donation and preventing and minimising organ trafficking.
This third edition of the guide, which is published on a biennial basis, applies to the transplantation of organs, tissues and cells of human origin for therapeutic purposes. Its aim is to provide guidance for all those involved to maximise the quality of organs, tissues and cells, and thereby the success rate of transplants, and to minimise risks. It includes safety and quality assurance standards for procurement, preservation, processing and distribution of organs, tissues and cells of human origin (allogenic and autologous) used for transplantation purposes.
