Introduction

"Once stem cell lines..have been DERIVED...they should be considered in the same way as other human biospecimens covered in this chapter."

I find this statement to be unclear with the following paragraph on "other derived products" as both are 'derived' products. Perhaps "other" covers it.

Sources of human biospecimens: Par 2: "One criterion...for designated periods."  The following sentence "Some jurisdictions...biospecimens"might be clearer if it concluded with the word "indefinitely."

Otherwise I am happy with the proposed revisions. Thank you for the oppotunity to comment.
