Biopreservation and Biobanking | Year: 2011

The National Blood Centre, the National Transplant Centre, and the Bioethics Unit of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità have compared the information leaflets and forms regarding the collection of informed consent used by each of the 18 biobanks that comprise the Italian network. With a view to harmonize the provision of information to couples and the collection of informed consent within the Italian Cord Blood Network, the 3 organizations have prepared a standard information leaflet and informed consent form to be used for the collection, storage, and allogeneic use of cord blood. The proposed model can be a useful tool for the development of specific informed consent forms for cord blood banking that comprises the minimum information necessary to meet ethical and regulatory requirements also in other countries. © 2011, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
