Heilung und Gesamtwohl

Ist fremdnützige Forschung an Nichteinwilligungsfähigen ethisch zu rechtfertigen?

  • Jürgen Boomgaarden


The article deals with the interpretation of the Council of Europe Convention on Human Rights and Biornedicine, article 17. The author develops the idea of dignity in regard to therapeutic and non-therapeutic research. He points out the tension and unity between the aim of healing and the aspect of wellbeing of the patient in research. The article discusses especially the criteria for non-therapeutic research and stresses the fact that this research aims to attain benefits for »other persons in the same age category or afflicted with the same disease or disorder or having the same condition« as the patient.
