General Donor Information
Phenotype and Disease related information (Donor)
|Diseases||No disease was diagnosed.
External Databases (Donor)
|Was the embryo established purely for research purposes?||No|
|Have both parents consented to the use of the embryo for ESC derivation?||Yes|
|Has informed consent been obtained from the donor of the embryo/tissue from which the pluripotent stem cells have been derived?||Yes|
|Was the consent voluntarily given?||Yes|
|If you do not hold the SIGNED Donor Consent Form, have you obtained a copy of the unsigned Donor Consent Form from the holder?||No|
|Alternatives to consent are available?||Yes|
|Alternatives to consent||IVF patients gave consent for investigations of clinically unsuitable embryos as part of their clinical cycle. This is a clinical process, independent of research. hESC were derived from embryonic outgrowth cells, originally developed for karyotyping, not from embryos and fully informed consent was granted. Multiple documents could not be added here so will send via email.|

|Does consent explicitly allow the derivation of pluripotent stem cells?||Yes|
|Does consent expressly prevent the derivation of pluripotent stem cells?||No|
|How may genetic information associated with the cell line be accessed?|
|Will the donor expect to receive financial benefit, beyond reasonable expenses, in return for donating the biosample?||No|
|Has a favourable opinion been obtained from a research ethics committee, or other ethics review panel, in relation to the Research Protocol including the consent provisions?||Yes|
