Featuring paired issues by Stanford’s Charles E. Murdoch and Christopher Thomas Scott and University of Alberta’s Amy Zarzeczny and Timothy Caulfield, the May issue of AJOB addresses the hot topic of the ethics of stem cell tourism.
Target Article authors and Open Peer Commentators alike address such essential questions as what are the moral obligations owed to patients who travel abroad to China or Russia seeking treatments unavailable in the United States, how to regulate these trials internationally, and how to handle the special cases of pediatric trials or orphan diseases.
In addition, associate editor David Magnus in his editorial writes about stem cell research and commissions under the “bioethics president.”
A must-read, groundbreaking issue that definitely deserves a look. Click here to read more at bioethics.net.
