Shortage of biological specimens for medical study

There is a general shortage of biological specimens for medical study. One example is skeletons. Partly because of a ban by India, traditional export leader in the field, there is now a serious shortage of skeletons for medical study; despite an estimated 10,000 sold per annum, supply cannot meet demand, and the price of a good skeleton more than doubled over a two-year span.
