Ethical and Regulatory Aspects of the Procurement of Cell Products from Healthy Minors on Research Protocols: Protecting Minors in the Context of Potentially Life-Saving Clinical Research
NIH Natcher Conference Center, Bethesda, MD
The primary goal is to establish a set of guidelines to use when evaluating the role of a minor hematopoietic stem cell donor on a research protocol, as it relates to the Federal regulations governing pediatric research. Secondary goals include identifying areas of controversy in the context of minor donors and federal regulations and design actions plans to potentially implement change in the federal regulations.
