Ethical Considerations in the Selection of Cells and the use of Biologicals

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 118)


Dr. Bruce Dull has discussed in-depth the benefit risk assessment in the development of and usage of immunizing agents. It is my task to cover the wide range of other ethical considerations which face investigators and makers of public policy concerned with immunization. Many of the issues have been explored in-depth at a National Conference on Immunization sponsored by HEW in November 1976, and by a series of National Immunization Work Groups convened by the Assistant Secretary for Health of Health, Education and Welfare thereafter.
