Background: Knowledge about assent or dissent of children to non-therapeutic research is poor.. Objectives: To assess sociodemographic characteristics in healthy children and adolescents who were invited to participate in non-therapeutic research, to evaluate their motives for assent or dissent and their understanding of the information given.. Methods: A total of 1281 healthy children and adolescents six to sixteen years of age were invited to participate in a non-therapeutic study and a questionnaire.. Results: Assenting children were motivated by a desire to help sick children (n = 638, 98%) and to gain experience with participating in a research study (n = 503, 82%). Dissenting children made their decision because of worries about having a blood (n = 193, 46%) or a urine sample (n = 94, 26%) taken or because of worries about a doctors examination (n = 136, 33%). Fewer children in the assent group (n = 166, 25%) than in the dissent group (136, 33%) worried about the doctors examination (p = ...
Results The interviewed children most frequently mentioned as positive experiences of non-therapeutic research participation helping others and the gratification that comes with it, possible health benefits in the future, having fun and new/increased knowledge about the human body, hospitals and doing research. Less frequently mentioned were getting a present, not having to go to school and getting extra attention from healthcare staff. ...

Findings published last week suggest that people are not troubled upon learning they are at higher risk of developing Alzheimers disease. Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine, US, led by Dr Robert Green, measured participants anxiety levels following results of a genetic test. The paper arrives amidst debate on how harmful direct-to-customer genetics testing - offered by companies such as 23andMe and DeCodeMe - might actually be to individuals.. The study involved 162 people averaging 50 years of age, who had a parent with Alzheimers disease. One third (non-disclosure group) were not given the results of the genetic test. The remainder (disclosure group) were told whether or not they carried a variant of the apolipoprotein E gene - ApoE4 - that is associated with increased risk of developing the condition. Questionnaires were issued to score subsequent anxiety, depression and distress. There was little difference measured ...

As researchers hone in on ways to detect whether someone has a high risk of developing Alzheimers disease before they have any symptoms, mental health professionals have worried what the psychological fallout of that knowledge might be.
Many middle-aged and senior Texans who are covered by certain insurance plans now qualify for tests that proponents say may detect undiagnosed cardiac disease and help them avoid premature death. When policies are updated this year, health insurers will be required to reimburse up to $200 for exams given to women ages 56 to 74 and men 46 to 75 considered at elevated risk of heart disease based on the Framingham Risk Score, which assesses heart disease risk based on studies of large populations over time. Reducing expensesIn 2006, the Houston-based Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication, or SHAPE, published a report indicating that preventive screenings for people without cardiac symptoms would save more than 4,000 lives a year in Texas, reduce heart attacks and save nearly $2 billion in health care expenses. According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac death - the fatal loss of heart function - occurs in about 300,000 people a year in the United States, many of whom have

New guidance say doctors and nurses must provide water to the dying. The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice) has drafted new guidance demanding that patients have access to fluids. The Liverpool Care Pathway which was withdrawn last year saw elderly and other vulnerable patients denied food and fluids, often without their knowledge or consent, or that of their relatives. However such practices may still be going on, albeit under different names. Roger Goss from Patient Concern commented saying: "It is shocking that this has to be spelled out to doctors and nurses". [Telegraph, 29 July] Antonia Tully of the Patients First Network said: "We are still seeing a lack of confidence among relatives about the way in which vulnerable patients are cared for. We are continuing to advise family and friends to maintain constant vigilance to make sure that those they love receive basic care, including food and water ...

(CIDRAP News) A committee of experts convened by the Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics (APUA) says that antibiotics should not be used in agriculture except to treat sick animals and protect healthy animals threatened by disease in the herd or flock.
5)(A) an estimated 70 percent of the antibiotics and other antimicrobial drugs used in the United States are fed to farm animals for nontherapeutic purposes, including-- (i) growth promotion; and (ii) compensation for crowded, unsanitary, and stressful farming and transportation conditions; and (B) unlike human use of antibiotics, these nontherapeutic uses in animals typically do not require a prescription; (6)(A) large-scale, voluntary surveys by the Department of Agricultures Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service in 1999, 2001, and 2006 revealed that 84 percent of grower-finisher swine farms, 83 percent of cattle feedlots, and 84 percent of sheep farms administer antimicrobials in the feed or water for health or growth promotion reasons, and many of the antimicrobials identified are identical or closely related to drugs used in human medicine, including tetracyclines, macrolides, Bacitracin, penicillins, and sulfonamides ...

Drugs will be withdrawn for non-therapeutic use (as defined above) after no more than two years, unless a reasonable certainty is shown by the applicant. First, this represents a fundamental shift in the burden of proof: rather than having to show that non-therapeutic antibiotic use is harmful, manufacturers have to show that it is not harmful. I cant emphasize what a fundamental shift this is (and which, no doubt, will make ag and pharmaceutical lobbyists break out in cold sweats). Second, because many antibiotics are not under patent (i.e., theyre generics), the economic incentives are reduced to preserve the use of unprotected drugs. Generic drug profits are made on the margins, unlike patent-protected drugs, whose owners typically have the resources to wage these fights (e.g., there just isnt enough profit to defend tetracycline production ...

In the first published research project worldwide on this new approach to testing medicines in children, the findings were announced in leading US medical journal Pediatrics.. The study, which involves the use of blood spots obtained from a simple heel-prick, took place in the Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and the School of Pharmacy at Queens.. The research was carried out by a team from the Universitys School of Pharmacy in partnership with the Regional Neonatal Unit in the Royal Maternity Hospital. It was funded by the Health and Social Care Research and Development Office (HSC R&D) and Action Medical Research.. Principal Investigator, Queens Professor of Pharmacy Practice James McElnay said: "This type of testing will obviously reduce the discomfort of medicine testing in these vulnerable patients. What is even more important, however, is that it will ensure maximum accuracy in calculating the most appropriate dose of a medicine for a sick child.. "Some 80 per cent of infants in ...

Antibiotics are fundamental to modern medicine, essential for treating everything from routine skin infections to strep throat, and for protecting vulnerable patients receiving chemotherapy or being treated in intensive care units.
Mean systolic and diastolic BP both declined in the years before death in patients with diabetes. This annual rate of decline was significantly more marked (−3.2 mmHg systolic and −1.3 mmHg diastolic) than in the patients who remained alive. Moreover, the decline was evident after adjustment for major organ failure-heart, kidney, and liver-as well as for common causes of death such as malignancies and stroke. These findings may signal an underlying population of vulnerable patients, although it is unclear whether the BP decline is merely a symptom of this vulnerability or is one of several physiologic contributors to the dying process.. The rate of change in BP has been of lesser significance than threshold values that serve as guides to initiation or adherence to antihypertensive therapy (12). Studies of outcomes in those who experience significant changes (either increases or decreases) in BP would be appropriate. Although hypertension in middle age is a risk factor for death, it is not ...

Glenda Cooper, PHD was co-author on this study and she and her cohorts compiled not only information on the lupus mouse and rat studies but also studies on TCE and how it affected humans. She and her group compiled several studies from all over the world on human subjects that were exposed to TCE. I spoke with Glenda over the telephone and unfortunately she felt she couldnt get involved because she works for the CDC and felt it would be a conflict of interest to represent individuals like myself while she works for the government. So, yes, Will you are right, science is political at it roots. However, the scientific studies still point to the fact that TCE is a trigger for autoimmune diseases. My concern is that they are not including the autoimmune diseases in the study they are doing for the Camp Lejune water. I feel that we are only touching the tip of the iceburg with the autoimmune diseases that TCE has triggered ...

Unethical human experimentation in the United States describes numerous experiments performed on human test subjects in the United States that have been considered unethical, and were often performed illegally, without the knowledge, consent, or informed consent of the test subjects. Such tests have occurred throughout American history, but particularly in the 20th century. The experiments include: the exposure of people to chemical and biological weapons (including infection of people with deadly or debilitating diseases), human radiation experiments, injection of people with toxic and radioactive chemicals, surgical experiments, interrogation and torture experiments, tests involving mind-altering substances, and a wide variety of others. Many of these tests were performed on children, the sick, and mentally disabled individuals, often under the guise of "medical treatment". In many of the studies, a large portion of the subjects were poor, racial minorities, or prisoners[citation needed]. ...
The new report details human experiments led by US researchers and drug companies on Africans who are typically undereducated, poor, and lack full understanding of their rights. The human subjects often are led to believe that they are receiving medical treatment from governmental health services or health ministries. These practices hearken back to the appalling experiments carried out by US researchers in Guatemala in the 1940s where hundreds of Guatemalans were deliberately infected with sexually transmitted diseases without information or consent. President Obama formally apologized to Guatemala for these experiments last year. Human experimentation in the United States is regulated by the Office of Research Integrity and various Ethical Research Institutional Boards. Many African countries lack these institutions. Even when they exist, they lack independence and are controlled by corrupt government officials. In one experiment on HIV sponsored by Gilead Sciences, the Centers for Disease ...

The shocking failure of Southern Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to investigate the deaths of over a thousand patients with learning disabilities or mental health issues made headlines at the end of last year, with both the Department of Health and NHS England promising reviews and major changes to tackle the issue. At a time of drastic cuts to NHS services, the physical healthcare of these vulnerable patients often falls short and the proper investigation of preventable deaths is essential, both for the families of the bereaved and to ensure that lessons are learned by our health services.. On 17th December 2015, NHS England published the "Independent review of deaths of people with a Learning Disability or Mental Health problems in contact with Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust April 2011 - March 2015".. The trust is one of the countrys largest mental health trusts, covering Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire and serves around 45,000 mental health and learning ...
