Completed projects

Biomedical Research with Human Subjects. Bioethical Issues

The project developed methodological tools that will facilitate the process of ethical evaluation of biomedical research on human subjects. The project considered in particular four problems: determining conditions of participation for vulnerable populations, risk-assessment methods in biomedical research, the principle of ethical randomisation, and the characteristics of ethical demands on research in epidemiology (principles of Good Epidemiological Practice).

Children in phase 1 cancer trials. Risk and social benefit

This project evaluated the risk/social benefit of enrolling children in phase 1 cancer trials. The project had two stages. First, estimate the social value of pediatric phase 1 studies by determining the probability that interventions tested in phase 1 pediatric studies are advanced into randomized trials and/or product labeling revisions. Second, use this estimation of social benefit, combined with our previous estimates of (clinical) risk and direct benefit, to ethically evaluate risk/benefit in pediatric phase 1 cancer studies. The latter benchmarked our estimated risk/benefit against other, morally relevant standards (e.g. risk/benefit in adult studies or risk/benefit for nonparticipation in trials).
