ABSTRACT
The authors look at the fundamental principles on informed consent related to embryonic stem cell research in Canada. They state that only embryos donated by people who no longer require them for reproductive purposes can be used for stem cell research under the existing regulations. They note that there is no clear consensus within the international community on which parties involved in stem cell research should seek consent. They present two unresolved consent issues and discuss the right of the donor to withdraw consent.
