    The Return of Individual Research Findings in Paediatric Genetic Research.Kristien Hens, Herman Nys, Jean-Jacques Cassiman & Kris Dierickx - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (3):179-183.
    The combination of the issue of return of individual genetic results/incidental findings and paediatric biobanks is not much discussed in ethical literature. The traditional arguments pro and con return of such findings focus on principles such as respect for persons, autonomy and solidarity. Two dimensions have been distilled from the discussion on return of individual results in a genetic research context: the respect for a participant’s autonomy and the duty of the researcher. Concepts such as autonomy and solidarity do not (...)

    Ethical Responsibilities Towards Dogs: An Inquiry Into the Dog–Human Relationship. [REVIEW]Kristien Hens - 2009 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 22 (1):3-14.
    The conditions of life of many companion animals and the rate at which they are surrendered to shelters raise many ethical issues. What duties do we have towards the dogs that live in our society? To suggest answers to these questions, I first give four possible ways of looking at the relationship between man and dog: master–slave, employer–worker, parent–child, and friend–friend. I argue that the morally acceptable relationships are of a different kind but bears family resemblances to the latter three. (...)

    BackgroundPrevention of mother to child transmission of HIV remains a key public health priority in most developing countries. The provider Initiated Opt – Out Prenatal HIV Screening Approach, recommended by the World Health Organization lately has been adopted and translated into policy in most Sub – Saharan African countries.

    To Transfer or Not to Transfer: The Case of Comprehensive Chromosome Screening of the In Vitro Embryo. [REVIEW]Kristien Hens - 2015 - Health Care Analysis 23 (2):197-206.
    The screening of in vitro embryos resulting from in vitro fertilization treatment for chromosomal abnormalities has as a primary aim to help patients achieve a successful pregnancy. Most IVF centers will not transfer aneuploid embryos, as they have an enhanced risk of leading to implantation failure and miscarriage. However, some aneuploidies, such as trisomy-21, can lead to viable pregnancies and to children with a variable health prognosis, and some prospective parents may request transfer of such embryos. I present two cases (...)

    Whole Genome Sequencing of Children’s DNA for Research: Points to Consider.Kristien Hens - 2011 - Journal of Clinical Research and Bioethics 2 (7).
    This report is grounded in several social concepts: First, the primary goal of genetic testing should be to promote the well-being of the child. Second, the recognition that children are part of a network of family relationships supports an approach to potential conflicts that is not adversarial but, rather, emphasizes a deliberative process that seeks to promote the child's well-being within this context. Third, as children grow through successive stages of cognitive and moral development, parents and professionals should be attentive (...)

    Discussions about the best age to reproduce have been abundant in ethical literature. Until recently, these discussions focused on the age of women. Many scholars have tried to come to grips with the effects on the child’s well-being of having an older mother. Often, authors have focused on the social effects, such as the fact that an older mother may not be healthy enough to care for the child or the risk for the child of losing her mother at a (...)
