President's Bioethics Commission releases report on pediatric medical countermeasure research
Date:3/18/2013

ould already have been exposed to a pathogen during an attack. This is ethically distinct from pre-event research.

The Bioethics Commission recommends that post-event research be planned for and conducted when either untested or minimally tested MCMs are used to protect children in an emergency situation. In addition, the Bioethics Commission recommends that if children receive untested MCMs in an emergency in an effort to save lives, that rigorous research protections be in place.

As it examined the ethical issues surrounding research with children, the Bioethics Commission built on its previous work on the issue of protecting research participants. In December 2011, it released Moral Science: Protecting Participants in Human Subjects Research, a report that assesses the current rules and regulations that protect research participants.

"The rules that protect children are even more stringent, as they should be," Gutmann said. "Medical countermeasure research warrants an ongoing national conversation to ensure an unwavering commitment by our society to safeguard all children both from unacceptable risks in research and through ethically sound research that promotes their health and well-being."
