  1. Laura Williamson, Marie Fox & Sheila McLean, The Regulation of Xenotransplantation in the United Kingdom After UKXIRA: Legal and Ethical Issues.
    Xenotransplantation - the transfer of living tissue between species - has long been heralded as a potential solution to the severe organ shortage crisis experienced by the United Kingdom and other 'developed' nations.
