Biosecurity in the global age : biological weapons, public health, and the rule of law by David P Fidler( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biosecurity in the GlobalAge offers a comprehensive analysis of the dramatic transformations reshaping how the international community addresses biological weapons and infectious diseases. Fidler and Gostin argue that the arms control approach first outlined in the Biological Weapons Convention no longer dominates, and they identify four emerging policy trends - the criminalization of biological weapons, the regulation of the biological sciences, the management of the biodefense imperative, and the preparation for biological weapons attack. The authors look at the links between security and public health policy, both at the national and international level, and scrutinize the difficulty of developing policies that improve defenses against both biological weapons and the threat of infectious diseases from new viral strains." "The renewed threat of biological weapons highlights the importance of crafting policy responses informed by the rule of law. This book explores patterns in recent governance initiatives and advocates building a "global biosecurity concert" as a way to address the threats presented by biological weapons and infectious diseases in the early 21st century."--Jacket
The AIDS pandemic : complacency, injustice, and unfulfilled expectations by Lawrence O Gostin( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 1,869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of essays, Lawrence O. Gostin, an internationally recognized scholar of AIDS law and policy, confronts the most pressing and controversial issues surrounding AIDS in America and around the world. He shows how HIV/AIDS affects the entire population - infected and uninfected - by influencing our social norms, our economy, and our country's role as a world leader." "Gostin blends his own legal scholarship with social commentary on AIDS policy, politics, and law. He gauges the national and international responses to the pandemic from its origins in 1981 through an initial phase of public denial and then a phase of intense awareness and mobilization. We are now in a third phase, he asserts, which is marked by complacency, injustice, and unfulfilled expectations."--Jacket

27 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public Health Law, first published in 2000, has been widely acclaimed as the definitive statement on public health law at the start of the twenty-first century. Lawrence O. Gostin's definition was based on the notion that government bears a responsibility for advancing the health and well-being of the general population, and the book developed a rich understanding of the government's powers and duties while showing law to be an effective tool in the realization of a healthier and safer population. In this second edition, Gostin analyzes the major health threats of our times, from emerging infectious diseases and bioterrorism to chronic diseases caused by obesity

Countering the problem of falsified and substandard drugs by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The adulteration and fraudulent manufacture of medicines is an old problem, vastly aggravated by modern manufacturing and trade. In the last decade, impotent antimicrobial drugs have compromised the treatment of many deadly diseases in poor countries. More recently, negligent production at a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy sickened hundreds of Americans. While the national drugs regulatory authority (hereafter, the regulatory authority) is responsible for the safety of a country's drug supply, no single country can entirely guarantee this today. The once common use of the term counterfeit to describe any drug that is not what it claims to be is at the heart of the argument. In a narrow, legal sense a counterfeit drug is one that infringes on a registered trademark. The lay meaning is much broader, including any drug made with intentional deceit. Some generic drug companies and civil society groups object to calling bad medicines counterfeit, seeing it as the deliberate conflation of public health and intellectual property concerns. Countering the Problem of Falsified and Substandard Drugs accepts the narrow meaning of counterfeit, and, because the nuances of trademark infringement must be dealt with by courts, case by case, the report does not discuss the problem of counterfeit medicines"--Publisher's description
Oversight and review of clinical gene transfer protocols : assessing the role of the recombinant DNA advisory committee by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gene transfer research is a rapidly advancing field that involves the introduction of a genetic sequence into a human subject for research or diagnostic purposes. Clinical gene transfer trials are subject to regulation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at the federal level and to oversight by institutional review boards (IRBs) and institutional biosafety committees (IBCs) at the local level before human subjects can be enrolled. In addition, at present all researchers and institutions funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are required by NIH guidelines to submit human gene transfer protocols for advisory review by the NIH Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee (RAC). Some protocols are then selected for individual review and public discussion. Oversight and Review of Clinical Gene Transfer Protocols provides an assessment of the state of existing gene transfer science and the current regulatory and policy context under which research is investigated. This report assesses whether the current oversight of individual gene transfer protocols by the RAC continues to be necessary and offers recommendations concerning the criteria the NIH should employ to determine whether individual protocols should receive public review. The focus of this report is on the standards the RAC and NIH should use in exercising its oversight function. Oversight and Review of Clinical Gene Transfer Protocols will assist not only the RAC, but also research institutions and the general public with respect to utilizing and improving existing oversight processes

Advancing the human right to health by José M Zuniga( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contents in this book offers a prospective on the global response to one of the greatest moral, legal, and public health challenges of the 21st century - achieving the human right to health as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and other legal instruments. Featuring writings by global thought-leaders in the world of health human rights, the book brings clarity to many of the complex clinical, ethical, economic, legal, and socio-cultural questions raised by injury, disease, and deeper determinants of health, such as poverty. Much more than a primer on the right to health, this book features an examination of profound inequalities in health, which have resulted in millions of people condemned to unnecessary suffering and hastened deaths. In so doing, it provides a thoughtful account of the right to health's parameters, strategies on ways in which to achieve it, and discussion of why it is so essential in a 21st century context. Country-specific case studies provide context for analysing the right to health and assessing whether, and to what extent, this right has influenced critical decision-making that makes a difference in people's lives. Thematic chapters also look at the specific challenges involved in translating the right to health into action
