Biomaterial banks for research -- clear strategies and recommendations needed
Date:4/18/2011

rvance of the principles contained in the recommendations of the Ethics Council is to be encouraged on the basis of the existing legal framework for large biobanks. This could be implemented effectively by making the observance of these principles a prerequisite for the funding of biobanks by the DFG and other public funding bodies. In addition data protection authorities and ethics commissions should require and monitor the observance of the guidelines.

  • Conversely, it is necessary to provide sufficient funds for biomaterial banks in order to ensure over the long term both a high-quality biobanking facility as well as the implementation of the current rules. Unified strategies are necessary at the various participating institutions to ensure this.

  • For smaller biomaterial banks there should be no tightening of the requirements in accordance with the minority statement by the German Ethics Council. Strategies are to be developed that also tie these smaller biobanks into secure structures for the purpose of optimising their usage.

  • Separate secrecy protection for biobanks does not appear necessary at present and would be unique internationally. Any new relevant legislation risks jeopardising international cooperation and biomedical research in Germany.
