The Ethical Use of Unethical Human Research Medical research is conducted to aid and support the development of knowledge in the field of medicine. It provides us the opportunity to answer the unanswered questions in order to improve human health. Indeed, in order to make a progress in human health it is essential to conduct research with human subjects. Properly controlled studies with human subjects are essential to verify any conclusions about normal physiology, mechanisms of disease, effectiveness of treatment, learning, or behavior. Unfortunately, not all human studies have been justifiable and useful.
In my opinion, reproducibility and replicability of experiments are important parts of the scientific method. To start with the replicability, why is this an important feature in science? When data is replicable it becomes more reliable. Repeating scientific experiments allows you to identify falsification, flukes and mistakes. Mistakes can be incorrect entering of data or misreading of results.
Grounds breaking scientific advances require complex and rigorous testing and investigation in laboratories and clinics. It is through research that we get all the possible answers about the safety and effectiveness of a new drug or a new therapy. Clinical trials are a branch from the research that helps answering the question about safety and benefits of a new intervention. Clinical trials should have more support from the government and the society since its main focus is to improve human health and his well-being leading eventually to the progress of the medical field and the economy of the country. When it comes to researches involving human subjects, grisly thoughts comes to mind remembering the unethical handling of human subjects participating in clinical researches during World War II.
It may be possible to add a new gene to the cell conferring a new function, such as to protect the cell against the side effect of chemotherapy or to immunize it to prevent infection. It can provide a way out for woman who are barren and want to have children. Its greatest value however is not an alternative means of reproduction, but rather as a powerful laboratory research tool, especially in the field of development biology. It can be very helpful in the study of immunology and organ rejection. Additionally cloning can be used with great benefit in medical research in the study of cancer and also can be used in the study of the aging
Without research being carried out medical professionals/and laboratory scientists would not be able to provide us with improved medications that can improve our health. Quantitative research is the collection of data. Individuals carrying out research will put this collected data
Bionic is improving in the coming years leading to a much more better discoveries. "These powerful but simple ideas are meant as medical aids to help human regain function, most specially those who are in military but there might be limits to how far we can augment humans" (Locke, 2014). Science has been changing the world and nature. Human imagination All of these robotic and futuristic discoveries raise ethical questions, that human augmentation in any point can be wrong. This thing, however, can be exploited.
Should Gene Therapy be adapted as a treatment method on the genetic medical field? Gene Therapy is modernly developed treatment that has been noticeably improved with the assist of technology, which helps on finding new ways to cure different disorders such as; Cancer, inherited disorders and certain viral infections, opening the possibility of curative and prevention of human sickness, furthermore, by introducing gene therapy as a trusted treatment in hospitals, that had an experience with the field of genetic diseases and their path of effecting on human body, would be a revelation in medical treatments1. However, this treatment has been debatable between medical practitioners who has different opinion about it, in relation to its side effects. As any other treatments it has pros and cons that might change the trending to it as a cure2. The essay will indicates the problems that gene therapy could face, which has been found by studies and researches and how others are contributing.
In biomedical and behavioural research, there can be issues that arise during the discovery of new processes and products, such as the ethicality of certain experiments and the results obtained. Back in the old times, when standards for conducting scientific research and experiments were not strictly adhered to, experiments conducted resulted in people or other living things being put in harm’s way, to obtain a certain result or confirm a suspicion. While such experiments claimed to be justified because they were meant to advance medical knowledge, is it always right to make sacrifices for the greater good? In this essay, I will use some case studies to discuss ethical issues in biomedical research. A common ethical issue concerns the use of animals in biomedical studies.
The topic of designer babies holds importance to me because it can help me expand my curiosity and knowledge on this matter as a whole. I plan to go into the medical field, and while doing the research, I may find some evidence about why people should or should not consider getting their babies genetically altered. This topic is also important to me, as a “doctor in the making,” because it makes me determined to cure people the right way, instead of a slow suicide with the genetic alterations. There are numerous things parents can do to live a healthy lifestyle without altering their babies
Introduction: My topic is based on cloning the great debate and would it have an influence on humankind. I think it will have its benefits on the advancement in biotechnology; curing diseases and improving humans with disabilities but also, on the other hand, it can affect the true purpose of the evolution of humans. Cloning is the creation of a genetically identical copy of a human. This process is done by the reproduction of cells and DNA tissue from the human embryo. There are three different types of cloning that all have an affecting on the evolution of humankind.
