High impact information on Ethics Committees


Biological context of Ethics Committees


Associations of Ethics Committees with chemical compounds

  • With the approval of the District Ethics Committee 7 of those patients were rechallenged with metipranolol 0.3% compared to timolol maleate 0.5% in a double blind trial [7].
  • METHODS: With ethics committee approval, blood was withdrawn from 35 healthy volunteers and incubated (1 h) either with 0 microg/ml, 0.0156 microg/ml, 0.0625 microg/ml or 0.5 microg/ml of etomidate as well as with its additives (propylene glycol and Lipofundin MCT 10%) [8].
  • After ethics committee approval, 51 consenting ASA physical status 1 or 2 adult patients were given basal flow sevoflurane anaesthesia using fresh gas flows of 150 to 300 ml x min(-1) oxygen [9].
  • Ethics committees under Texas law: effects of the Texas Advance Directives Act [10].
  • The study was terminated after 17 subjects, on agreement with the local ethics committee, due to concern with the poor Apgar scores in the pethidine group [11].

Gene context of Ethics Committees

  • Ethics Committee report, Part 2: The Nuremberg Code [12].
  • Any research involving, amongst other issues, patients, NHS staff and use or access to NHS premises may require ethics committee approval [13].
  • Today's ethics committees face varied issues. A CHA survey reveals committees' functions, authority, and structure [14].
  • In the spring of 2003, the board of directors of the American Pain Society asked the APS Ethics Committee to formulate a position statement for the Society concerning the use of placebos in clinical practice (cf, reference ) [15].
  • Do ethics committees work? Yes [16].
