  • BioEdge: Super surgeon who uses stem cells accused of unethical conduct
    informed consent Dr Macciarini is a colourful character whose experimental windpipe operations have been on the front page of major newspapers around the world over the past few years I m like a wild animal that does not need to be in a cage I need to express my convictions that I can help a patient with innovative things he told The Lancet However other issues have been raised about his research In 2012 he was placed under house arrest in Italy charged with attempted fraud and extortion He was accused of offering a higher place in the transplant queue for money One of his papers had to be retracted in 2012 Dr Macciarini has operated on at least three patients and replaced their windpipe with a structure made of stem cells However it appears that none of the operations was subjected to an ethical review In one case a patient signed a consent form but two weeks after the surgery MORE ON THESE TOPICS informed consent scientific misconduct stem cells This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial

  • The arguments for and against egg freezing
    emphasising that significant doubt remains about the safety of the procedure Although the American Society of Reproductive Medicine ASRM removed the experimental label from egg freezing ASRM was careful not to endorse the practice In fact ASRM actually found a lack of data on safety efficacy cost effectiveness and potential emotional risks associated with egg freezing In addition ASRM warned against the widespread use of egg freezing because it may give women false hope and encourage women to delay childbearing Mohapatra speculates about possible social pressures that could develop as egg freezing becomes more popular I worry that if egg freezing is embraced by employers as a way to delay the opting out concept those women who wish to have a child when they are younger may be seen as less committed and this reproductive option may become more of a perceived requirement To counter this concern I suggest a more robust informed consent process similar to the process used in research Her chief recommendation is that doctors be required to provide more detailed information about the risks of the procedure to satisfy informed consent requirements I argue that physicians should approach egg freezing for social reasons more as research than as treatment and thus should be required to disclose that there are unforeseeable risks associated with the process This is a highly useful resource for those trying to understand the various legal ethical and sociological issues surrounding a new and increasingly popular form of reproductive technology MORE ON THESE TOPICS egg freezing informed consent This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make

  • BioEdge: Catholic hospitals attacked for denying patients abortion and assisted suicide
    what care they receive And the ACLU is also suing Trinity Health Corporation a Michigan based major Catholic provider for prohibiting abortions tubal ligations and the prescription of contraceptives in its hospitals The ACLU has based its suit on what it sees as a repeated and systematic failure to provide women suffering pregnancy complications with appropriate emergency abortions as required by federal law Bioethicist Arthur Caplan agrees with the ACLU claim He says Catholic hospitals are not private entities They took in 115 billion in 2011 alone from Medicare and Medicaid They also get tax exemptions and other public money Hospitals awash in public funds are duty bound to follow the law not religious directives But Trinity Health spokeswoman Eve Pidgeon said there was no tension between Trinity s practices and the provision of adequate medical care The ethical and religious directives are entirely consistent with high quality health care and our clinicians continue to provide superb care throughout the communities we serve On another front in the aftermath of a victory for assisted suicide in California critics are asking why Catholic hospitals refuse to participate in assisted suicide in states where it is legal In a report in The Nation some doctors who favour assisted suicide complained that patient care was compromised that they had been gagged and that they fear losing their jobs In Washington state where assisted suicide is legal the problem is even more visible as Catholic hospitals provide nearly one bed in two The Nation sums up the problem Catholic healthcare institutions have been important and indispensable components of America s medical landscape for centuries But what s clear is that the ragged interchange between America s excessively complex healthcare delivery system and the demands for religious exemptions have produced problematic results that answer not
