Informedconsent to biobankresearch: a need for ethical framework and coherent national regulation in Latvia

International conference"From informed consent to no consent? The challenges of new ethical frameworks“Tartu, EstoniaNovember 4 - 6, 2010

Scientificknowledge

  • There is deficiency of publicly available information on biobanking and no public discussion on ethical aspects of biobank research.

  • There is lack of experience of participatory practices. The responsibilities regarding development of legal and ethical framework are left to experts (politicians and scientists).

  • “Well if say to me, it is a marker of analysis ... I fully believe in the man who gave the oath of Hippocrates and appreciate the professional responsibility, either, and if he is a villain then I cannot intervene there.” (Genome Project donor)4

  • There is no discussion on possible future developments of informed consent requirements in terms of liberalism and communitarianism.

  • The media is not as an intermediary between government, science and society. Only some bioethical issues, such as GMOs, are broadly covered by mass media.
