human tissue

certain body parts. Historically, in the UK, the use of certain body parts has been regulated by Human Tissue Acts, thus the phrase generally describes that area of legal regulation. In the most recent legislation the focus is on relevant material- m aterial which has come from a human body and consists of, or includes, human cells. Cell lines are excluded, as is hair and nails from living people. Live gametes and embryos are excluded as they are regulated under different legislation relating to fertilization and embryology. Appropriate' consent is required for the scheduled uses. The scheduled uses include everything from anatomical examination to transplantation, including public display. The whole area of activity is regulated by the HUMAN TISSUE AUTHORITY.
