Field of medicine: Medical ethics and research policy.
Format: Softcover book.
Audience: Persons interested in contemporary ethical issues in the regulation of research involving human subjects.
Purpose: To explore the change in the conception of justice in U.S. medical research in the past 20 years.
Content: The authors contrast the emphasis in research policy focused on protection of human research subjects with contemporary issues involving increased access to research of certain groups and populations, such as pregnant women and ethnic minorities. They distill the shifting focus of federal research policy: going beyond consent to endure the risks and burdens of research toward an appeal to fairness in the distribution of the benefits of research. Chapters examine the balance between protection and increased access to research in different groups and populations, including vulnerable sick persons, children, convenient and captive populations (prisoners, institutionalized persons, military personnel, and students), and previously protected populations (pregnant women), as well as research conducted in international settings.
