The Ethics of Biomedical Research: An International Perspective
Baruch A. Brody, Leon Jaworski Professor of Biomedical Ethics Director Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy Baruch A Brody
Oxford University Press, 1998 - Medical - 386 pages
This book analyzes the major issues of research ethics through a careful review of the treatment in official policies on research ethics developed throughout the world (especially North America, Western Europe, and the Pacific Rim). Among the issues covered are animal research, research on human subjects, epidemiological research, genetic research, reproductive research, research on vulnerable subjects, clinical trials, drug approval and the research process, and research on women and minorities. Brody also evaluates the content and the methods of developing these policies in light of his philosophical position of pluralistic casuistry.
This is the only book that analyzes all the major issues in research ethics. It is the only book which deals with these issues from an international perspective rather than just a US perspective. Major official policies from important research-intensive countries are reprinted in the appendix (close to 200 plates of otherwise difficult material).
