    Age Matters but it should not be Used to Discriminate Against the Elderly in Allocating Scarce Resources in the Context of COVID-19.Leniza de Castro-Hamoy & Leonardo D. de Castro - 2020 - Asian Bioethics Review 12 (3):331-340.
    A patient’s age serves as a very useful guide to physicians in deciding what disease manifestations to anticipate, what treatment to offer for certain conditions, and how to prepare for possible emergencies. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, determining treatment options on the basis of a patient’s chronological age can easily give rise to unjustified discrimination. This is of particular significance in situations where the allocation of scarce critical care resources could have a direct impact on who will live (...)

    Exploitation in the use of human subjects for medical experimentation: A re-examination of basic issues.Leonardo D. de Castro - 1995 - Bioethics 9 (3):259–268.
    Relatively subtle forms of exploitation of human subjects may arise from the inefficiency or incompetence of a researcher, from the existence of a power imbalance between principal and subject, or from the uneven distribution of research risks among various segments of the population. A powerful and knowledgeable person (or institution) may perpetrate the exploitation of an unempowered and ignorant individual even without intending to. There is an ethical burden on the former to protect the interests of the vulnerable. Excessive or (...)

    The declaration of Istanbul in the Philippines: success with foreigners but a continuing challenge for local transplant tourism. [REVIEW]Leonardo D. de Castro - 2013 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 16 (4):929-932.
    The Philippine government officially responded to the Declaration of Istanbul on Organ Trafficking and the related WHO Guidelines on organ transplantation by prohibiting all transplants to foreigners using Filipino organs. However, local tourists have escaped the regulatory radar, leaving a very wide gap in efforts against human trafficking and transplant tourism. Authorities need to deal with the situation seriously, at a minimum, by issuing clear procedures for verifying declarations of kinship or emotional bonds between donors and recipients. Foreigners who come (...)

    Debts of Good Will and Interpersonal Justice.Leonardo D. de Castro - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 24:21-26.
    A debt of good will is incurred when a person becomes the beneficiary of significant assistance or favor given by another. Usually, the beneficiary is in acute need of the assistance given or favor granted. This provides an opportunity for the giving of help to serve as a vehicle for the expression of sympathy or concern. The debt could then be appreciated as one of good will because, by catering to another person's pressing need, the benefactor is able to express (...)

    Critical care in the philippines: The "Robin Hood principle" vs. kagandahang loob.Leonardo D. de Castro & Peter A. Sy - 1998 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 23 (6):563 – 580.
    Practical medical decisions are closely integrated with ethical and religious beliefs in the Philippines. This is shown in a survey of Filipino physicians' attitudes towards severely compromised neonates. This is also the reason why the ethical analysis of critical care practices must be situated within the context of local culture. Kagandahang loob and kusang loob are indigenous Filipino ethical concepts that provide a framework for the analysis of several critical care practices. The practice of taking-from-the-rich-to-give-to-the-poor in public hospitals is not (...)

    Governance of Biomedical Research in Singapore and the Challenge of Conflicts of Interest.Calvin Wai Loon Ho, Leonardo D. de Castro & Alastair V. Campbell - 2014 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 23 (3):288-296.
    This article discusses the establishment of a governance framework for biomedical research in Singapore. It focuses on the work of the Bioethics Advisory Committee , which has been instrumental in institutionalizing a governance framework, through the provision of recommendations to the government, and through the coordination of efforts among government agencies. However, developing capabilities in biomedical sciences presents challenges that are qualitatively different from those of past technologies. The state has a greater role to play in balancing conflicting and potentially (...)

    Ethics Education Needs More than the Four Principles: Bioethics Discourse in a Community of Inquiry.Leonardo D. de Castro & Isidro Manuel C. Valero - 2018 - In Henk ten Have (ed.), Global Education in Bioethics. Springer Verlag. pp. 69-80.
    This essay reexamines the four-principle approach to biomedical ethics in the context of ethics education in general and in relation to possible ethics discourse within a community of inquiry in particular. A community of inquiry is the setting for learning and education in philosophy for children. This community enables children to acquire critical thinking and other skills as part of democratic education. The use of the four principles approach tends to contribute to a practice that limits critical thinking skills because (...)

    Response.Sarah Jane Toledano & Leonardo D. de Castro - 2007 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 4 (3):241-242.
    Fast food companies like Siam Burger that participate in health awareness campaigns create a conflict of interest between the social responsibility of promoting health and the business interest of increasing sales through marketing strategies like advertising. Alternative options of raising health awareness without mitigating the involvement of fast food companies either by denying advertisements or having a third party foundation should be explored.

    Response.Lalaine H. Siruno & Leonardo D. de Castro - 2007 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 4 (3):243-244.
    The offer of the fast food company gives rise to suspicion. This seems to be based on unfounded stereotypes, however. This paper argues that we need to preserve choices in taking particular courses of action. There is nothing inherently wrong in fast food consumption so long as consumers are made aware of the importance of weight management and proper nutrition.
