Abstract
Stem cell-based chimera research depends on the free and voluntary provision of human biomaterials necessary for the derivation of pluripotent stem cell lines. Informed consent requirements for the procurement of human embryos, gametes, and somatic cells must take into account unique features of biomedical research involving the use of immortal cell lines that carry their donors’ genetic information. The extent and basis for donors’ rights, including the right to withdraw from research, are explored here in detail.
