CC Grand Rounds: Ethics Rounds: Research on Fetal Therapies: How Can We Do It Ethically?
For a number of conditions and illnesses, treatment prior to birth has the potential to improve health outcomes. This potential raises the need for research to identify fetal therapies that are safe and effective. Because fetal therapies are intended to benefit the fetus, but are administered through the mother, this research raises important ethical challenges. Please join us to discuss how we can address these challenges and conduct research on fetal therapies ethically.
