Notes

Abstract: A controlled market for human organs from both live donors and cadaveric donors with generous compensation packages for the donors will best address the shortages for human organs used for transplantation while minimizing the issues of exploitation of the donors themselves and other negative externalities. Short of this politically difficult solution, other options are available to addressing the shortage, such as presumed consent legislation. These solutions however cannot fully alleviate the shortage of human organs for transplantation. In the long run, effective funding for research into improving the viability of organs, the usage of marginal donors, the effectiveness of immunosuppressant drugs, and methods for creating new organs without the need of a human donor, such as xenotransplantation, may ultimately alleviate the shortage of human organs for transplantation.
