109 Legal and Ethical Aspects of Further Use of Human Tissue LINDA NIELSEN Member of the Danish Council of Ethics, Ass. Prof. at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark 1. Introduction The purpose of this paper is to elaborate on the ethical and legal aspects of further use of human tissue: a) Which are the components of the ethical dilemma; b) how should they be balanced against each other; c) which are the tools that can be used to extend the protection of integrity, privacy, etc; and d) how can these tools be used. The proposed legal framework in the draft Bio-Ethics-Convention is included, and the Danish experience and debate used as an example of possible attitudes. 'Further use of human tissue' is understood as use for another purpose than that for which it was originally obtained. Focus is primarily on tissue banks for research and teaching purposes, whereas organ transplantation and blood transfusion is not included in the considerations. The main issues raised by the existence of biological banks are the follow- ing : a. Once the human tissue has fulfilled its intended use for primary purposes - To what extent should the storage of biomaterial be allowed?
