Chapter 3.4_6 Introduction

It remains unclear whether the chapter covers human embryos and gametes or not. The wording in the introduction seems contradicting.

General Comments

We welcome the combined chapter on human biospecimen and the decision to restrict guidance on the collection and derivation of stem cells to the ART guidelines. Amendments significantly increase clarity and reduce duplication.
