Swiss 3-Years-Ban for Xenotransplantations

mailinglist genet-news

Last Thursday the Swiss National Council accepted a temporary moratorium
for Xenotransplantations. In 3 to 5 years this provisorium should be
replaced by a transplantation law, where the details will be regulated. 
Exceptions: Single clinical trials and transplantation of tissues and
cells are allowed, but only permitted if any
infection risk can be excluded and a therapeutical use is prooved.
