An organ transplantation is the removal of a whole or partial organ from one corpse to another (or from a donor site on the patient's own body), for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or failing organ with a healthy one from the donor site. Organ donors can be living, or deceased (previously referred to as cadaveric). Organ transplants can be categorized as 'life-saving', while tissue transplants are 'life-enhancing'. A transplant of tissue from one to oneself is known as an 'autograft'. An allograft is a transplanted organ or tissue from a genetically non-identical member of ...
Kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased-donor (formerly known as cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor renal transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated) transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.
blog entry 1-legalising organ trade in singapore
Two days ago, on Thursday, 4th Sep 2008, ailing retail tycoon Tang Wee Sung, age 56, whose purchase of a kidney through Wang Chin Sing as the middleman for $300,000 was exposed, was fined a total of $17,000 and jailed a day.

Organ trade remains an open question among many in Singapore, especially after the controversy over Tang Wee Sung, the first Singaporean charged with trying to buy a kidney.

But I believe underlying the many factors and justifications that people have for or against organ trade is the crux of entire issue, the sanctity of human life. Much can be argued regarding whether human life stands to gain or not should organ trade be legalised, however one of the most obvious reasons for ... market research, surveys and trends
