Biobanken, in denen international und im großen Stil menschliche Körpersubstanzen und persönliche Daten zu Forschungszwecken gesammelt werden, bergen ein enormes Potenzial für die sich exponentiell entwickelnde medizinische Forschung. Die gespendeten Proben und Daten können jedoch viel über den einzelnen Spender offenbaren und diesen und mit ihm verbundene Personen Diskriminierungsrisiken aussetzen. Die Arbeit stellt sich insbesondere der Frage, ob eine traditionell erforderliche individuelle Einwilligung des Spenders in zu diesem Zeitpunkt jedoch noch unbestimmte zukünftige Forschungszwecke ausreichen kann oder ob und wie der Spender weitergehend an Entscheidungen das Schicksal seiner sensiblen Proben und Daten betreffend beteiligt werden kann und muss. Dabei werden insbesondere innovative Trust-Modelle auf ihr Potenzial im deutschen Rechtsraum hin untersucht.

The provision and use of traditional, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has been growing globally over the last 40 years. As CAM develops alongside - and sometimes integrates with - conventional medicine, this handbook provides the first major overview of its regulation and professionalization from social science and legal perspectives. The Routledge Handbook of Complementary and Alternative Medicine draws on historical and international comparative research to provide a rigorous and thematic examination of the field. It argues that many popular and policy debates are stuck in a polarized and largely asocial discourse, and that interdisciplinary social science perspectives, theorising diversity in the field, provide a much more robust evidence base for policy and practice in the field. Divided into four sections, the handbook covers: analytical frameworks power, professions and health spaces risk and regulation perspectives for the future. This important volume will interest social science and legal scholars researching complementary and alternative medicine, professional identify and health care regulation, as well as historians and health policymakers and regulators.

Written by 61 key scholars and fresh voices, the Handbook’s easy-to-follow chapters appear here for the first time in print and represent the wide range of viewpoints in neuroethics. The volume spotlights new technologies and historical articulations of key problems, issues, and concepts and includes cross-referencing between chapters to highlight the complex interactions of concepts and ideas within neuroethics. These features enhance the Handbook’s utility by providing readers with a contextual map for different approaches to issues and a guide to further avenues of interest.

Thirty years ago, English jurist Patrick Devlin wrote: "Is it not a pleasant tribute to the medical profession that by and large it has been able to manage its relations with its patients ... without the aid of lawyers and law makers". Medical interventions at the beginnings and the endings of life have rendered that assessment dated if not defeated. This book picks up some of the most important of those developments and reflects on the legal and social consequences of this metamorphosis over the past ten years, and will be of interest to students of law, sociology and ethics who want a considered and critical introduction to, and reflection on, key issues in these pivotal moments of human life.
