  10. NEONATAL HIV RESEARCH 2. Beneficence Background Information Laboratory, Animals, Adults Risks: May not be infected (98%) Toxicities in neonates Different metabolism Long-term effects - Growth/Development/Mental Effect of maternal treatment - Resistance

  11. NEONATAL HIV RESEARCH Benefits Better suppression of infection Lower risk of transmission Less side effects Easier to administer Better medical care Social support for family Benefit to other children

  12. NEONATAL HIV RESEARCH 3. Justice Vulnerable subjects Newborns (Should not be targeted for convenience) General availability - Location of center Recruitment procedures
