The Globalization Of Public Health: Emerging Infectious Diseases And International Relations, David Fidler Oct 1997

The Globalization Of Public Health: Emerging Infectious Diseases And International Relations, David Fidler

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

In this article, Professor Fidler explains how the processes of

globalization have altered traditional distinctions between national and

international public health. Professor Fidler begins the article by

familiarizing the reader with globalization, reminding the reader that

globalization refers to the various factors that infringe upon a sovereign

state's ability to control what occurs in its territory. Next, the article defines

and discusses emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and examines the

contributions made by globalization to the emergence and reemergence of

EIDs. The article then develops a "pathology of the globalization of public

health ", which helps the reader to understand better ...

Global Responses: The Search For Cures In The Development Of Pharmaceuticals, Stuart R. Walker Oct 1997

Global Responses: The Search For Cures In The Development Of Pharmaceuticals, Stuart R. Walker

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

In this article, Professor Stuart Walker examines several challenges that

will be faced by the global pharmaceutical industry in the near future. These

involve the question of improving the overall quality of life and care for

millions in an era of cost containment. In order to respond to the increasing

demands for advances in medicine while simultaneously retaining an

industrially strong, innovative, and resilient economy, responsibility for the

necessary changes will need to be shared among governments, the

pharmaceutical industry, and health care professionals.

In particular, four challenges faced by the global pharmaceutical industry

and their responses to each are ...

Global Responsibilities: Ethics, Public Health, And Global Environmental Change, Dale Jamieson Oct 1997

Global Responsibilities: Ethics, Public Health, And Global Environmental Change, Dale Jamieson

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

In this article, Professor Dale Jamieson examines the relationship between

climate change and public health from an ethical perspective. He begins by

exploring the link between global environmental change and public health and

concludes that global warming poses a serious potential threat to human

health. Professor Jamieson then questions why the potential health effects of

climate change have received so much attention when the other ramifications

of climate change have been left unaddressed He argues that the combination

of several factors has brought the issue of potential health effects to the

forefront of the climate change debate. One such factor ...

The Prevalence Of Pulmonary And Upper Respiratory Tract Symptoms And Spirometric Test Findings Among Newspaper Pressroom Workers Exposed To Solvents, Dean M. Hashimoto, Burton W. Lee, Karl T. Kelsey, Barbara Yakes, Teresa Seitz, David Christiani Oct 1997

The Prevalence Of Pulmonary And Upper Respiratory Tract Symptoms And Spirometric Test Findings Among Newspaper Pressroom Workers Exposed To Solvents, Dean M. Hashimoto, Burton W. Lee, Karl T. Kelsey, Barbara Yakes, Teresa Seitz, David Christiani

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

To investigate the relationship between exposure to organic solvents and the presence of pulmonary and upper respiratory tract mucous membrane symptoms, we conducted a cross-sectional study of 215 newspaper pressroom workers who were occupationally exposed to organic solvent and lubricant mixtures. Thirty-four compositors, who were not occupationally exposed to the solvents or lubricants, served as controls. Pressroom workers and compositors underwent spirometric testing and were also asked about the presence of cough, phlegm, hemoptysis, dyspnea, wheezing, chest tightness, nose or throat irritation, eye irritation, and sinus trouble. The spirometric results did not significantly differ between the two groups. However, the ...

Bioethics Policy: Looking Beyond The Power Of Sovereign Governments (Foreword), Robert L. Schwartz Sep 1997

Bioethics Policy: Looking Beyond The Power Of Sovereign Governments (Foreword), Robert L. Schwartz

Faculty Scholarship

Lawyers are trained to think in terms of power exercised by a sovereign-an institution authorized to enforce a procedurally appropriate decision with coercive force.' Generally, lawyers have a broad notion of what constitutes a sovereign. In the United States, for example, this notion includes the federal government, state governments, most tribal units, traditional territorial governments and their agencies-e.g., school boards, local public park districts, water run-off management districts, and flea abatement boards-and a host of other institutions. As a result, it is difficult for lawyers to recognize that policy also may emanate from other institutions that possess only persuasive ...

Georgia's Professional Malpractice Affidavit Requirement, Robert D. Brussack Jul 1997

Georgia's Professional Malpractice Affidavit Requirement, Robert D. Brussack

Scholarly Works

Section 9-11-9.1 of the Georgia Code might be the state's most notorious procedural statute. Enacted in 1987 to protect professionals against the harm done by groundless malpractice litigation, the statute provides that a professional malpractice claim ordinarily must be accompanied by an affidavit executed by an expert. In the affidavit, the expert must substantiate the claim by attesting that some act or omission alleged in the claim was a negligent act or omission--a departure from a professional standard of conduct. During the past decade, Georgia's appellate courts have returned again and again to the problem of what ...


The Limits Of Advance Directives: A History And Assessment Of The Patient Self-Determination Act, Edward J. Larson, Thomas A. Eaton Jul 1997

The Limits Of Advance Directives: A History And Assessment Of The Patient Self-Determination Act, Edward J. Larson, Thomas A. Eaton

Scholarly Works

In this article, Professors Larson and Eaton assess the merits and shortcomings of the Patient Self-Determination Act. The article first traces the legislative history and policy behind the Act. The article then traces and analyzes many of the empirical studies designed to assess the Act and the Act's effect on the use of advance directives. The authors determine that the Act has been, at best, a "modest success." They conclude that the use of advance directives will remain limited and that alternative methods of providing for health treatment decisions, such as empowering physicians to act on incompetents' behalf, will ...


The Hiv Litigation And Its Settlement [In Japan], Awaji Takehisa, Keisuke Mark Abe Jul 1997

The Hiv Litigation And Its Settlement [In Japan], Awaji Takehisa, Keisuke Mark Abe

Washington International Law Journal

As early as 1983, Japan's Health and Welfare Ministry had reason to know that the use of unheated blood products by hemophiliacs was infecting them with HIV, the AIDS virus. Although heated-and safe-blood products were already available from the United States, government approval in Japan was deliberately delayed for almost three years while local pharmaceutical companies developed the products. By the time the unheated blood products were all withdrawn from the market, many of Japan's hemophiliacs had contracted HIV. A number of them, or their survivors, sued the government and the pharmaceutical companies. At the end of the ...


Patent Term Extension Of Pharmaceuticals In Japan: So You Say You Want To Rush That Generic Drug To Market In Japan . . . Good Luck!, William T. Christiansen Ii Jul 1997

Patent Term Extension Of Pharmaceuticals In Japan: So You Say You Want To Rush That Generic Drug To Market In Japan . . . Good Luck!, William T. Christiansen Ii

Washington International Law Journal

With the passage of the Drug Price Competition Act of 1984 in the United States, the recent German Supreme Court decision allowing for experimental use of patented pharmaceuticals, and indirectly through the adoption of the Supplemental Protection Certificate in Europe, Japan seems to be the lone large pharmaceutical market which does not allow in some way for the experimental use of patented drugs to gain regulatory approval for a generic equivalent. Japanese generic pharmaceutical manufacturers had, until recently, operated under the assumption that the testing of a generic equivalent to a patented drug to gain regulatory approval was allowable as ...

Testing Testing, Carl E. Schneider Jul 1997

Testing Testing, Carl E. Schneider

Articles

Last year, Congress passed the Ryan White Care Act Amendments of 1996. The amendments authorize ten million dollars for each fiscal year from 1996 through 2000 for counseling pregnant women on HIV disease, for "outreach efforts to pregnant women at high risk of HN who are not currently receiving prenatal care," and for voluntary testing for pregnant women. The amendments compromise a central question: whether prenatal and neonatal AIDS testing should be compelled. The compromise is complex. The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is instructed to establish a system for states to use to discover and ...


Ru 486 Examined: Impact Of A New Technology On An 0 Id Controversy, Gwendolyn Prothro Jun 1997

Ru 486 Examined: Impact Of A New Technology On An 0 Id Controversy, Gwendolyn Prothro

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Abortion is an extremely divisive issue in American politics and culture. Prothro begins this Article by analyzing the current legal standards governing reproduction, which draw a sharp distinction between abortion and contraception. Prothro then examines the function of RU 486, demonstrating that it acts both as a contraceptive and as an abortifacient. Because of this dual capacity, RU 486 does not fit neatly into the current legal framework. Prothro concludes this Article by arguing that RU 486 should force the Supreme Court to create a new framework for the "procreative right." Prothro argues that this new framework should treat the ...
