  • Details

The definitive book on the ethics of research involving human subjects in developing countries.

Using 21 actual case studies "Ethical Issues in International Biomedical Research" covers the most controversial topics, including the ethics of placebo research in Africa; what benefits should be provided to the community after completion of a research trial; how to address conflicts between IRBs in developed and developing countries; and undue inducement of poor people in developing countries. Each case is accompanied by two expert commentaries, written by many of the world's leading experts in bioethics as well as new voices with research experience in developing countries. Students in bioethics, public and international health, and ethics will find this book particularly useful.
