·
You have the right to request the storage of the fertilized eggs for a total period of 10 years.
·
The embryos that are donated by you will be used only for the production of embryonic stem cells. The production of stem cells succeeds only in some embryos and not in all of them.
·
It is important to note that the fetuses that are donated by you will never be returned to a womb of another woman.
·
It should be mentioned that the embryos will not survive after they are used for the production of stem cells.
·
The research on the embryos and the stem cells will be conducted in accordance with the ethical rules. The use of the stem cells for transplantation will be conducted only subject to the approval of the ethical committees.
·
The stem cells that will be produced and the cells that will be developed in this process might be kept frozen for a future use in research and development.
·
The goal of this experiment is to promote research in the field of human embryonic stem cells and the use of these cells in transplantations. The cells that will be produced within the framework of this research will be provided to researchers around the world subject to their commitment that their research will be conducted in accordance with ethical rules. The cell recipients will not transfer the cells to other third parties without explicit written consent from the researchers in this research.
·
You will not receive any tests results from this research or any information regarding the research findings.
·
If stem cells will be produced from your fetuses, these stem cells might be used in research related to human transplantation. No information will be given to you in this matter and you will not have any right or influence on these transplantations.
·
Any labeling that identifies that the embryos belong to you, will be removed prior to the production of the embryonic stem cells.
·
The cells that will be produced from the fetuses (that will be donated by you), will receive a name code in order to keep the information confidential. Your information will be kept in a code form and will be confidential. This information will be kept only in the Hadasah’s hospital Safe. The Hospital manager will need to approve any contact with you (in the future) (calling you back etc.). Since there is a low chance that someone will contact you in the future, this experiment is considered to be an experiment with “identified samples”.
 
[ * ] = Certain confidential information contained in this document, marked by brackets, has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
