It should be possible to give a general consent for the use of the individual's samples and data for certain kinds of diseases, e.g. in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular research. However, if their use in a different type of research such as cancer research for instance or infectious diseases is intended, it should be subject to approval by an ethical committee. If the kind of research is ethically controversial, like human cloning, the donor herself/himself must be asked for consent even if the legal situation allows this kind of research.
