Carefully constructed features highlight these debates, drawing out the European angles, religious beliefs, and feminist perspectives which influence legal regulations. Other features such as "a shock to the system", "public opinion" and "reality check" introduce further sociological aspects, contributing to the lively and engaging manner with which the subject is approached.

Recent scandals involving the use of human body parts have highlighted the need for legal clarification surrounding property law and the use of human tissue. This book advances the notion that the legal basis for dealing with this is already available in the law but has thus far neither been used nor discussed. Proposing an alternative approach to constructing entitlements in human tissue and resolving resulting property conflicts, a new methodology is also advanced for abstracting different concepts within the debate which enables comparison and distinction between different cases of entitlement and retention.

Personalized healthcare—or what the award-winning author Donna Dickenson calls "Me Medicine"—is radically transforming our longstanding "one-size-fits-all" model. Technologies such as direct-to-consumer genetic testing, pharmacogenetically developed therapies in cancer care, private umbilical cord blood banking, and neurocognitive enhancement claim to cater to an individual's specific biological character, and, in some cases, these technologies have shown powerful potential. Yet in others they have produced negligible or even negative results. Whatever is behind the rise of Me Medicine, it isn't just science. So why is Me Medicine rapidly edging out We Medicine, and how has our commitment to our collective health suffered as a result? In her cogent, provocative analysis, Dickenson examines the economic and political factors fueling the Me Medicine phenomenon and explores how, over time, this paradigm shift in how we approach our health might damage our individual and collective well-being. Historically, the measures of "We Medicine," such as vaccination and investment in public-health infrastructure, have radically extended our life spans, and Dickenson argues we've lost sight of that truth in our enthusiasm for "Me Medicine." Dickenson explores how personalized medicine illustrates capitalism's protean capacity for creating new products and markets where none existed before—and how this, rather than scientific plausibility, goes a long way toward explaining private umbilical cord blood banks and retail genetics. Drawing on the latest findings from leading scientists, social scientists, and political analysts, she critically examines four possible hypotheses driving our Me Medicine moment: a growing sense of threat; a wave of patient narcissism; corporate interests driving new niche markets; and the dominance of personal choice as a cultural value. She concludes with insights from political theory that emphasize a conception of the commons and the steps we can take to restore its value to modern biotechnology.

Comment faire échec aux trafics d'organes ? Peut-on choisir le sexe de son enfant ? Ou la couleur de ses yeux ? Le diagnostic préimplantatoire, est-ce déjà de l'eugénisme ? Les assureurs auront-ils accès aux résultats d'un test génétique ? toutes ces interrogations, et beaucoup d'autres, sont nées des progrès fulgurants de la biologie et de la médecine. Plus que jamais, ces sciences inspirent de grands espoirs mêlés d'une certaine crainte. Pour la première fois, un livre fournit sur ces questions un éclairage qui ne se limite pas au plan national. Dans un style journalistique clair et accessible, émaillé de nombreux exemples, les deux auteurs rendent compte de la mosaïque de réponses apportées dans chaque pays. Ils décrivent aussi les efforts d'harmonisation entrepris au conseil de l'europe, qui devraient aboutir à l'adoption prochaine d'une convention de bioéthique applicable à l'ensemble du continent européen.

This report examines the appropriateness of state intervention to limit access to medically assisted procreation technologies or to control the use of such technologies; the p̀roblematic' medical aspects of the technologies and the ability of existing social and professional controls to provide adequate public protection (physical and psychological risks, selection, screening and storage standards, success rates, record keeping, and access to medical and genetic information); the need to review, and where necessary, adapt the law to the specific problems connected with the donation and deposit of gametes and embryos (ownership of genetic material and donor liability), and the filiation of the children involved; and the legal aspects of surrogate motherhood and the commercialization of procreation in general (sale of gametes and payments to surrogates).
