This important work takes as its subject one of medicine's most pressing arenas of ethical debate. There has been a consistent interest in ethical issues arising in the context of HIV research. Ongoing international and multi-site studies and the continuing search for an HIV vaccine continue to prompt examination of how this research is conducted. Also examined are how participants are engaged in the studies and the obligations of the researchers to individual participants and their communities during the course of and following the conclusion of the research. Each chapter of this book is authored primarily by one of the editors (secondarily by the other) and is accompanied by one to two case studies.

From the reviews:

"The use of case studies makes this a rich book that contributes to the research ethics literature. The discussion of the cases and the ethical issues each case raises give readers a better appreciation of the breadth and depth of the relevant ethical and scientific concerns." -Ana Smith Iltis, Ph.D., St. Louis University Center for Health Care Ethics, DOODY REVIEW

"Loue (Case Western Reserve Univ.) and Pike (AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland) present a series of reflections surrounding HIV/AIDS research. ... The chapter topics and case studies are apt, and the analyses throughout are thought-provoking. The volume is well suited for use by science and medical students. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." -R. E. Kraft, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (7), 2008

"I am not sure who would want to read a more comprehensive treatment of the subject than this work. ... Never was a treatise on research ethics more needed." -Philip E. Veenhuis, MD, MPH. JAMA. Vol. 300(5), 2008

"For the first time, scholars tackle the moral complexities of the work in which HIV researchers have been engaged and highlight implications of the decisions being made in the field. These are decisions that can literally have life and death implications for those who participate in HIV-related research. ... Loue and Pike have found a way to establish a united approach, addressing these issues through highlighting their commonly held beliefs and perspectives, and producing a beautifully orchestrated volume where the realities of science dance in perfect tempo with the needs for protecting human rights. ... important reading for numerous audiences ..." -Julianne M. Serovich, Ph.D., Columbus, Ohio. The Journal of Legal Medicine, 29 (2), 2008
