Pediatric ethics in the age of molecular medicine.
Many scientific advances in molecular medicine, such as those made in genomics, stem cell transplantation, and neurobiology, raise important ethical issues that are relevant to pediatrics. Although some of these novel issues appear to be nearly without precedent, others are illuminated by reflection on prior challenges. How do we approach such complex ethical questions in the context of pluralism? This article examines several important areas in molecular medicine exemplifying fundamental ethical questions that are broadly applicable.
