Organs Are Funny Things....
Setting aside issues surrounding organ trafficking, Alder Hay Hosptial, infectious diseases, and the potential lifespan of the transplanted organs ("nearly new, pre-owned liver, free to good home")*, I am distinctly of the opinion that organs and tissues for transplantation don't last that long after the clinical death of the host and that this opens up a very short window of opportunity for the transplantation procedure.
* And, no, I'm not trying to be insenstive about the whole matter. Human life is important and needs to be preserved wherever possible.
How does one address things like tissue rejection testing with such little time?
Are we going to end up with (another) highly-secure, multiple-language, EU-wide database linking prospective donors with those with a stated medical need to ensure the organ gets to the right part of the EU in 24 hours or less?
Don't the sheer logistics of the task reduce the liklihood of success?
