Abstract

In this paper, the authors suggest more effective conditions for human tissue preparation in research hospitals. Because recent genetic and molecular studies have contributed to the rapid development of molecular and genetic medicine, human tissue is now again being considered as a valuable research resource. Basically, high-quality research-oriented tissue bank organizations are a very important part of a research hospital. The current management system for human tissue, however, is not very effective from either legal or practical perspectives. In this article, the authors propose some improvements on the human tissue management system. The laws on human tissue such as the Bioethics and Safety Act should be changed to contain suitable language applying on-site and efficient multi-dimensional information. Informed consent should be an essential requirement before surgery. Pathologists should be supported as the essential manpower of human tissue banks by law. A committee composed of a clinician, researcher, pathologist, information manager, and coordinator should be established to manage human tissue banks in hospitals. The Institutional Review Board should pay more attention to preventing the leakage of the private information of donors, and researchers should know about the review process and guidelines. This suggestion will create a more stable and effective system for the management of human tissue banks, and it will also create a complete and integrated system for research institutions. Therefore, human tissue banks can play an important role in improving research hospitals' competitiveness by providing a valuable collection of material for research.
