- DescriptionHuman gene transfer is widely regarded as one of the most promising techlogies for the treatment of a variety of disorders, but it presents practitioners with a variety of difficult ethical questions.

The book discusses the difficult ethical challenges that arise from attempting to translate laboratory discoveries into clinical applications. These range from which available techniques to use, when to initiate human testing, questions of consent, expectation in public arenas, how to define acceptable risk, and the inclusion of vulnerable or disadvantaged subjects in early phase trials. This book is relevant to ethicists, legal practitioners, policy makers, geneticists and clinicians involved in clinical trials of new medical interventions.
