This work is a global comparison and analysis of law relating to LDT. It also systematically analyzes the key ethical and legal issues in LDT. Aided by data from a programme of interviews with and questionnaires from transplant professionals, living donors and recipients, the book reaches conclusion as to the feasibility and need for increasing use of LDT in the light of current practice and attitudes and the growing shortage in kidneys (amongst other organs). Extensive increases in LDT use are shown to be necessary and feasibly achievable without compromising high ethical and legal standards. Detailed recommendations are made for the regulation of LDT.
