Statut juridique de l'organe dentaire : quelle incidence pour la recherche ?

Abstract : Currently, the French Public Health Code considers the dental organ as skin appendages. However, skin appendages are excluded from most sections of law, which protect and enclose human body’s elements and products. We sought to understand which stakes are implied and how we can use existing laws. After avulsion, the dental organ can be stored, it can be used for research or practical work at the University. But knowledge advances, both in terms of DNA genetic information, than the revolution in pulp stem cells, create an ethical concern about the protection of research participants. Currently, in France, dental research is daily confronted to this questioning. To publish internationally, researchers have to require the notice of an ethics committee, however their position may vary about the dental organ, this committee do not always agree to provide a notice. In the absence of legal status evolutions, a framework could come from the idea of "collection of biological samples". On this assumption, we propose summary tables gathering each collections different situations and procedures. These tables include the legal and ethics framework of a collection of biological samples, governed by the actual 2004 Public Health law as well as the Jardé law whose decrees are to be issued.
