What is a fair offer?

Hi everyone! Who is going to the EACME in Leuven? I am hoping to go and have submitted an abstract what is a fair offer when it comes to research with children in low-income settings. The UK Nuffield Council on Bioethics report on Children and Clinical Research stressed the importance of the requirement of fair offer when inviting children to participate in research. What does everyone think?

Severe malaria in children

Hi everyone,

I am writing a paper on the development of drugs for severe malaria in children. 

Although important progress has been made during the last decade, severe falciparum malaria remains a major cause of mortality, especially in children under five in sub-Saharan Africa. Even with the current first line treatment, parenteral artesunate, mortality remains high at around 10%. It is clear that new drugs are needed. Artesunate was first evaluated in healthy volunteers for…

Are children always vulnerable research participants?

Hi everyone

I have been asked to submit a paper to the Asian Bioethics Review special issue on vulnerability. in this paper, I argue that the blanket categorization of children as vulnerable research subjects is ethically problematic. I don't want to reveal too much as the paper is under review now! But happy to hear if you have any thoughts.

Consent and assent in paediatric research - special considerations in low income settings

However little has been written about the unique challenges related to consent and assent in paediatric research in low-income settings where research is most needed and the disease burden is high. The concept of assent in the current…
