Case Studies in Ethics and HIV Research

JAMA. 2008;300(5):590-591. doi:10.1001/jama.300.5.590

In the preface of this book, the authors and editors state that “We clearly do not address all ethical quandaries that may arise during the course of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–related investigation, and it would be impossible to do so within one text” (p v). I am not sure who would want to read a more comprehensive treatment of the subject than this work. Actually, the title is something of a misnomer. A title more reflective of the contents would be “Ethics in HIV Research,” subtitled “With Illustrative Case Studies.” The book is divided into 4 parts, with case studies only in the last 3 sections.
