The Ethical Challenges of Human Research

Selected Essays

Franklin G. Miller

  • The book challenges the conventional wisdom in research ethics, specifically in criticizing the widely-endorsed principle of clinical equipoise and the prevailing approach to informed consent in terms of autonomous authorization.
  • It provides systematic ethical analysis of issues such as placebo-controlled trials, sham surgery, challenge studies, use of deception, and phase 1 oncology trials.
