        The law that applies to research using human biological materials varies tremendously between jurisdictions. The authors argue that a framework for the transfer of tissue comparable to the model of data protection used in the EU Directive might be a way forward.

        The accession of ten new countries to the European Union has re-opened the issue of parallel importing. It is expected that there will be some form of transitional provisions to limit parallel imports from the accession countries in the first few years of membership and also that a form of Bolar provision will be introduced.
