The core element of informed consent is information order zithromax australia zeomic antimicrobial, reli- able zithromax 100mg free shipping bacteria battery, scientiﬁcally and clinically grounded information zithromax 250mg with visa vanquish 100 antimicrobial. If that were the case, then there would be no ethical justiﬁcation at all for proceeding with the intervention. On the contrary, enough is known that clinical researchers are morally and medically warranted in believing that this intervention is as likely to yield a net therapeutic beneﬁt as it is likely to yield a net harm. But there are also a lot of unknowns, which represent the potential for serious, perhaps fatal, harm to the patient. In the case of David, for example, we have no reason to believe that the researchers were negligent at that time in failing to detect the Epstein–Barr virus (suppressed) in the bone marrow of his sister. In an experimental medical context there are numer- ous possibilities such as this. This is one feature of experimental medicine that can be a source of ethical pitfalls. A second feature is that we are usually dealing with patients who are much more anxious (oftentimes desperate) than the average patient. These are patients who are faced with very serious illnesses, often life-threatening, who have failed all conven- tional medical therapy. That is, they are much more vulnerable than your typical patient; and consequently, physicians caring for them will have a much higher degree of moral responsibility for protecting the best interests of such patients. Speciﬁcally, researchers will often have a lot to gain (psychologically and professionally) if their experimental efforts are successful. But this requires that they recruit the patients who will have to assume the risks. And, if the researchers present those risks too candidly or too clearly, they may fail to secure the consent of the patients to participate in the research. We saw earlier that it is easy to denounce as unethical physicians who compromise the best interests of their patients for their own ﬁnancial gain. This is what might be referred to in col- loquial terms as an “ethical no-brainer. Though we have called attention to the professional rewards that await successful researchers, the focus of the public, and the focus of the researchers themselves may be the noble and altruistic motive of defeating some horriﬁc disease that causes premature death and substantial suffering. They may see themselves as taking signiﬁcant professional risks in pursuing this line of research, and they may have sacriﬁced much time for relaxation and personal fulﬁllment to pursue this research; and consequently, their consciences may be numb to the idea that there would be anything ethically problematic about expecting that patients involved in this research would have to take some risks as well. However, one of the most basic principles in medical ethics is what is referred to as the Kantian principle of respect for persons. In short, that principle says that it is never ethically acceptable to treat persons as if they were mere things, as if one individual could use another individual for purposes that the latter individual did not accept as his or her own. Again, the primary ethical purpose of informed consent is to permit patients to adopt/accept the medical therapies that are being offered by their physi- cian. No matter how genuinely noble the intent of that physician in providing medical care, if that competent patient has not freely consented to those interven- tions, then the outcome is ethically ignoble. As noted earlier, eliciting truly informed consent in experimental clinical cir- cumstances is much more difﬁcult and ethically risk-laden than in ordinary medical practice. Patients in these circumstances may desperately want to hear hopeful things from their physicians, which makes it easy for experimental researchers to understate the risks to which such patients might be exposing themselves. Patients are naturally inclined to trust their physicians, which means they are less likely to ask probing questions about competing interests that might motivate that researcher. That makes it all the more ethically imperative that researchers be candid with potential patients about the risks of experimental medicine and the rewards that might accrue to them as researchers. Since researchers themselves may have great difﬁculty being candid enough in these circumstances, given the genuine mixture of motives that generates such research, the ethically required course of action is that the physician who is primarily responsible for providing therapeutic care to a patient be different from the physician who is responsible for the research. In that way it is expected that the primary care physician will be better able to advise that patient in a suitably neutral fashion about where their best medical interests might lie. Finally, it is assumed that this primary care physician would have no ties at all to that clinical research, which might otherwise potentially compromise his/her ability to protect the best interests of the patient for whom they are caring. Case of Donald: Gene Therapy for Cystic Fibrosis There are a number of other ethical issues that might be raised in connection with the case of David, but we will pass over them. The case of David is not about gene therapy, but it is actually an excellent model for the sorts of clinical ethical issues that are most likely to arise. Having discussed the case of David in some depth, this portion of our discussion can be much more concise. We start by recalling an earlier observation, namely, that patients enrolled in clinical trials for serious medical disorders are often in medically desperate circumstances; they have generally exhausted all other reasonable options. But this was not true with David; and it will generally not be true for many of the early trials with different approaches to gene therapy. As in the case of David, we will assume that Donald is very bright, which is to say he is capable of rationally processing the relevant medical information. Before commenting directly on this hypothetical case, we will lay out a common ethical framework often used to address cases like this, including a sharper arti- culation of some of the ethical issues raised by this case. That prompts the ethical question: Is Donald capable of making an autonomous choice in this matter? Would we (societal representatives) have the moral right to deny all 12-year-old individuals such an option, no matter how bright or mature they were, much as we deny the right to legally consume alcohol to those below age 21? A second basic principle of health care ethics, probably the oldest of these prin- ciples, is what is referred to as the principle of nonmaleﬁcence. It is often interpreted to mean that at the very least physicians should do nothing that will cause unnec- essary harm to their patients. Surgeons will cause considerable misery to their patients because of what surgery is, but such surgery does not represent a net harm to the patient because it is conﬁdently believed that surgery will restore the patient’s health. Further, the patient has freely agreed to the surgery because he sees this as protecting his best medical interests. So surgery in these circumstances does not rep- resent a violation of this ethical principle. These are not inert substances; they are often modiﬁed viruses, which is to suggest that there is some risk of biological modiﬁca- tion of those viruses within an individual that could have serious adverse conse- quences. Again, we have David’s actual story as a reminder of the kind of risks that are associated with clinical medicine. It is expected that they will either be destroyed or that they will function in such a way that they produce the proteins with which they are normally associated. Again, it is not expected that these genes will somehow insert themselves into normal cells and disrupt the normal function- ing of the genetic machinery. We think we know enough about how things work at that level that it is extremely unlikely that something like that would happen. For any sort of major surgery patients are assuming signiﬁcant enough risk of harm.
