    The Ethics of Deep Brain Stimulation.Marcus Unterrainer & Fuat S. Oduncu - 2015 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 18 (4):475-485.
    Deep brain stimulation is an invasive technique designed to stimulate certain deep brain regions for therapeutic purposes and is currently used mainly in patients with neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. However, DBS is also used increasingly for other experimental applications, such as the treatment of psychiatric disorders, weight reduction. Apart from its therapeutic potential, DBS can cause severe adverse effects, some that might also have a significant impact on the patient’s personality and autonomy by the external stimulation of DBS (...)

    Attitudes on Euthanasia, Physician-Assisted Suicide and Terminal Sedation -- A Survey of the Members of the German Association for Palliative Medicine.H. C. Müller-Busch, Fuat S. Oduncu, Susanne Woskanjan & Eberhard Klaschik - 2005 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 7 (3):333-339.
    Background: Due to recent legislations on euthanasia and its current practice in the Netherlands and Belgium, issues of end-of-life medicine have become very vital in many European countries. In 2002, the Ethics Working Group of the German Association for Palliative Medicine has conducted a survey among its physician members in order to evaluate their attitudes towards different end-of-life medical practices, such as euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, and terminal sedation. Methods: An anonymous questionnaire was sent to the 411 DGP physicians, consisting of (...)

    Stem Cell Research in Germany: Ethics of Healing Vs. Human Dignity. [REVIEW]Fuat S. Oduncu - 2003 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 6 (1):5-16.
    On 25 April 2002, the German Parliament has passed a strict new law referring to stem cell research. This law took effect on July 1, 2002. The so-called embryonic Stem Cell Act ( Stammzellgesetz — StZG ) permits the import of embryonic stem (ES) cells isolated from surplus IvF-embryos for research reasons. The production itself of ES cells from human blastocysts has been prohibited by the German Embryo Protection Act of 1990, with the exception of the use of ES cells (...)

    Priority-Setting, Rationing and Cost-Effectiveness in the German Health Care System.Fuat S. Oduncu - 2013 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 16 (3):327-339.
    Germany has just started a public debate on priority-setting, rationing and cost-effectiveness due to the cost explosion within the German health care system. To date, the costs for German health care run at 11,6 % of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP, 278,3 billion €) that represents a significant increase from the 5,9 % levels present in 1970. In response, the German Parliament has enacted several major and minor legal reforms over the last three decades for the sake of cost containment (...)

    The Role of Non-Directiveness in Genetic Counseling.Fuat S. Oduncu - 2002 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 5 (1):53-63.
    When the complete human genomehas been sequenced, everyone of us will becomea potential candidate for genetic counselingand testing. Within a short period of timeeveryone will obtain his personal geneticpassport identifying deleterious andsusceptibility genes. With the availability ofpresymptomatic tests for late-onset disordersand the possibilities of prevention andtreatment, the conflict between directivenessand non-directiveness will dominate thecounseling setting. Despite general consent onproviding genetic information in a nondirectivefashion to preserve value neutrality andenhance client's autonomy, there is no acceptedcommon definition of what non-directivenessreally is or (...)

    Doctor-Cared Dying Instead of Physician-Assisted Suicide: A Perspective From Germany. [REVIEW]Fuat S. Oduncu & Stephan Sahm - 2010 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 13 (4):371-381.
    The current article deals with the ethics and practice of physician-assisted suicide (PAS) and dying. The debate about PAS must take the important legal and ethical context of medical acts at the end of life into consideration, and cannot be examined independently from physicians’ duties with respect to care for the terminally ill and dying. The discussion in Germany about active euthanasia, limiting medical intervention at the end of life, patient autonomy, advanced directives, and PAS is not fundamentally different in (...)

    Human Cloning-Biological and Technical Facts, Ethical and Legal Evaluations.Fuat S. Oduncu - 2001 - Ethik in der Medizin 13 (1-2):111-126.
    Zusammenfassung. Inzwischen ist „Dolly” mehrfach durch die Klonierungen anderer Säugetiere hinreichend bestätigt worden. Im Januar 1999 sollen Koreanische Forscher sogar den ersten menschlichen Embryo kloniert haben. Im folgenden werden zunächst biologisch-technische Grundlagen aktueller Klonierungstechnologien des Embryo-Splittings und der Zellkerntransplantation vorgestellt. Anschließend folgt eine kurze ethische Bewertung der Klonierung beim Menschen, wobei das Klonen als ein Verstoß gegen die Menschenwürde klassifiziert wird. Seit der Verabschiedung des Embryonenschutzgesetzes im Januar 1991 sind jetzt über neun Jahre vergangen. In Anbetracht der wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse und (...)

    Klonierung von Menschen – Biologisch-Technische Grundlagen, Ethisch-Rechtliche Bewertung.Fuat S. Oduncu - 2001 - Ethik in der Medizin 13 (1-2):111-126.
    Definition of the problem: Recently, ”Dolly” has been confirmed by cloning several other mammals. In January 1999 it was even reported that Korean researchers first of all had cloned the first human embryo. In the following article some basic biological and technical aspects of modern cloning strategies, such as embryo splitting and nuclear transplantation, will be described. Subsequently, a short critical analysis will discuss the ethical problem of cloning human beings. Since the German Embryo Protection Act from January 1991 substantial (...)
