The draft chapter provides advice for both researchers and Human Research Ethics Committees (HRECs), outlining institutional and researcher responsibilities, and highlighting ethical considerations associated with animal-to-human xenotransplantation trials.

Comments are invited on the content of the draft Chapter 3.6: Xenotransplantation by Wednesday 8 June 2016.
