Abstract [en]

Background and objectives

Umbilical cord blood (CB) banking and therapeutic use raiseseveral ethical issues: medical indications, legal framework, public versus private biobanks,autologous versus allogeneic use, ownership, commercialisation, quality assurance and manyothers. Surrogate informed consent is one of the most notable controversial ethical issues. Theaim of this study was to analyse and compare informed consent forms for CB collection, storageand use in the 18 accredited biobanks of the Italian Network.

Material and methods

The first part of the article gives a brief overview of the scientificframework, the comparison of allogeneic and autologous use and Italian regulations. In thesecond part the contents of the consent forms from the 18 Italian biobanks are compared with the"NetCord-FACT International Standards for Cord Blood Collection, Banking, and Release forAdministration".

Results

Most of the Italian consent forms differ significantly from the NetCord-FACTStandards, with regards both to formal and substantial aspects.

Conclusion

Italian forms for CB collection, storage and use need standardisation to meetinternational criteria.
