More than a year after the birth announcement of genome-edited babies in China, we are only slightly more informed of He Jiankui’s experimentation, the results of which are named “Lulu” and “Nana.” Although apparently approached, neither Nature nor the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) chose to publish He’s work. Antonio Regalado reported on … 12/06/2019 11:56
by Craig Klugman, Ph.D. The start of the winter holidays means winter hiatus for many shows. This week only one show dealt with bioethical issues. The Resident (Season 3: Episode 9): Maternal-fetal conflict; Politics, Business, and Torture; Problems with outpatient surgery in offices. In one storyline, a pregnant patient has trouble breathing during a standard ultrasound. She is diagnosed with an enlarged heart, cardiomyopathy brought on by her prior chemo. Okafor suggests delivering the baby early to protect her heart. This situation is a classic case of maternal-fetal conflict: What is good for the baby (being carried to term) is not good for the mother’s health (relieving the stress on her heart).… 12/06/2019 09:18
The American species of the common house mouse (Mus musculus) does an odd thing when going through opioid withdrawal. It jumps involuntarily, rearing up on its hind legs and leaping 3-to-4 feet in the air. I was a spectator to this phenomenon this summer, while working at a research hospital in New York City. . 12/03/2019 12:51
The Kings County Medical Society in New York recently hosted a brunch with New York State legislators. One of the guests was Richard Gottfried, chair of the New York State Assembly Health Committee, who is cosponsoring A2694, a bill legalizing medical aid in dying (MAID). As a medical oncologist with 30 years’ experience treating seriously ill patients, I have concerns about it, and I expressed them to Gottfried. . 12/02/2019 23:04
Michigan Representative is drafting legislation that would allow parents to refuse brain death testing for a minor. If enacted, Michigan would be the first state in the country to legislatively require consent. Trial courts in some states have issued orders to that effect in specific cases. But every state to legislate or regulate the question (e.g. New York, Nevada) has said consent is not required. “” would be modeled after "Simon's Law" which was recently enacted in Missouri, Kansas, Arizona, and other states. Simon's Law typically requires a minor’s parents to consent to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining treatment. Bobby's Law would do all that plus require consent to determine brain death. 12/02/2019 13:31
Technology always seems to outrun ethics. But just because something can be done does not mean that it should be done. Usually this discussion is focused on the latest life-sustaining medical device, but with emergence of electronic medical records, a whole new set of problems have appeared Last month, Rob Copeland of The Wall Street Journal (behind pay wall) published a … 12/02/2019 09:28
While watching a television commercial from one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies I suddenly heard something that attracted my attention. I am generally quite good at ignoring commercials and especially good at ignoring drug commercials because of their endless lists of side effects (this drug may cause sudden hideously painful death) among other uninteresting features. Thus, it has come a surprise that I appeared to hear the statement “This is why we science.” This is the new tag line from a series of commercials from Bayer Pharmaceuticals. These are not merely commercials that are trying to get us to buy aspirin but rather to make them appear to be contributing to our wellbeing in a much broader and more fundamental sense.

Must clinicians obtain consent to perform brain death tests? Over the past few years, courts and legislatures across the country have answered this question in . For example, in Montana, Kansas, and California courts held that clinicians could not perform brain death testing without family consent. On the other hand, a Virginia court held that clinicians may perform brain death testing without family consent. A new Nevada statute says the same thing. Like Nevada, New York law also says that consent is not required. The relevant states "The facility must make diligent efforts to notify the patient’s Surrogate Decision-maker that the. process for determining brain death is underway. Consent. need not be. obtained . . . .". Nevertheless, a. Decembe.
