    birth of any industrialized nation 11 5 nearly twice the rate of many European countries In this book John Lantos and Diane Lauderdale examine why the rate of preterm birth in the United States remains high even though more women have access to prenatal care now than three decades ago They also analyze a puzzling paradox why even as the rate of preterm birth rose through the 1990s and early 2000s the rate of infant mortality steadily decreased Dying in the Twenty First Century Toward a New Ethical Framework for the Art of Dying Well Edited by Lydia Dugdale Most of us are generally ill equipped for dying Today we neither see death nor prepare for it But this has not always been the case In the early fifteenth century the Roman Catholic Church published the Ars moriendi texts which established prayers and practices for an art of dying In the twenty first century physicians rely on procedures and protocols for the efficient management of hospitalized patients How can we recapture an art of dying that can facilitate our dying well The Censor s Hand The Misregulation of Human Subject Research By Carl E Schneider Medical and social progress depend on research with human subjects When that research is done in institutions getting federal money it is regulated often minutely by federally required and supervised bureaucracies called institutional review boards IRBs Do can these IRBs do more harm than good In The Censor s Hand Schneider addresses this crucial but long unasked question The Genealogy of a Gene Patents HIV AIDS and Race By Myles W Jackson In The Genealogy of a Gene Myles Jackson uses the story of the CCR5 gene to investigate the interrelationships among science technology and society Mapping the varied genealogy of CCR5 intellectual property natural selection Big and Small Pharma human diversity studies personalized medicine ancestry studies and race and genomics Jackson links a myriad of diverse topics Thieves of Virtue When Bioethics Stole Medicine By Tom Koch Bioethics emerged in the 1960s from a conviction that physicians and researchers needed the guidance of philosophers in handling the issues raised by technological advances in medicine It blossomed as a response to the perceived doctor knows best paternalism of the traditional medical ethic and today plays a critical role in health policies and treatment decisions Bioethics claimed to offer a set of generally applicable universally accepted guidelines that would simplify complex situations Human Subjects Research Regulation Perspectives on the Future Edited by I Glenn Cohen and Holly Fernandez Lynch The current framework for the regulation of human subjects research emerged largely in reaction to the horrors of Nazi human experimentation revealed at the Nuremburg trials and the Tuskegee syphilis study conducted by U S government researchers from 1932 to 1972 This framework combining elements of paternalism with efforts to preserve individual autonomy has remained fundamentally unchanged for decades Rationing Is Not a Four Letter Word Setting Limits on Healthcare By Philip M Rosoff Most people would
