Abstract
When clinical trials of gene-edited pig organ transplantation are initiated, the consent form that the patient is requested to sign will be an important document. Consent to receive a pig xenograft will have significant differences when compared with the requirements of most experimental clinical procedures. We here suggest a consent form for pig kidney transplantation that addresses the major points that will be required and hope it will provide a basis for discussion and future modification, if necessary. There is purposely some repetition in the document, but we believe this is necessary to ensure that the patient has a clear understanding of what he/she is consenting to.
