    Ethical Implications of the Use of Whole Genome Methods in Medical Research.Jane Kaye, Paula Boddington, Jantina de Vries, Naomi Hawkins & Karen Melham - unknown
    The use of genome-wide association studies in medical research and the increased ability to share data give a new twist to some of the perennial ethical issues associated with genomic research. GWAS create particular challenges because they produce fine, detailed, genotype information at high resolution, and the results of more focused studies can potentially be used to determine genetic variation for a wide range of conditions and traits. The information from a GWA scan is derived from DNA that is a (...)

    The Causation of Disease - the Practical and Ethical Consequences of Competing Explanations.Ulla Räisänen, Marie-Jet Bekkers, Paula Boddington, Srikant Sarangi & Angus Clarke - 2006 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 9 (3):293-306.
    The prevention, treatment and management of disease are closely linked to how the causes of a particular disease are explained. For multi-factorial conditions, the causal explanations are inevitably complex and competing models may exist to explain the same condition. Selecting one particular causal explanation over another will carry practical and ethical consequences that are acutely relevant for health policy. In this paper our focus is two-fold; the different models of causal explanation that are put forward within current scientific literature for (...)

    Heart Disease and Social Inequality: Ethical Issues in the Aetiology, Prevention and Treatment of Heart Disease.Paula Boddington - 2009 - Bioethics 23 (2):123-130.
    Heart disease is a complex condition that is a leading cause of death worldwide. It is often seen as a disease of affluence, yet is strongly associated with a gradient in socio-economic status. Its highly complex causality means that many different facets of social and economic life are implicated in its aetiology, including factors such as workplace hierarchy and agricultural policy, together with other well-known factors such as what passes for individual 'lifestyle'. The very untangling of causes for heart disease (...)

    Working Up Policy : The Use of Specific Disease Exemplars in Formulating General Principles Governing Childhood Genetic Testing. [REVIEW]Paula Boddington & Susan Hogben - 2006 - Health Care Analysis 14 (1):1-13.
    Non-therapeutic genetic testing in childhood presents a “myriad of ethical questions”; questions which are discussed and resolved in professional policy and position statements. In this paper we consider an underdiscussed but strongly influential feature of policy-making, the role of selective case and exemplar in the production of general recommendations. Our analysis, in the tradition of rhetoric and argumentation, examines the predominate use of three particular disease exemplar to argue for or against particular genetic tests. We discuss the influence these choices (...)

    Communicating Genetic Information in the Family: Enriching the Debate Through the Notion of Integrity. [REVIEW]Paula Boddington & Maggie Gregory - 2008 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 11 (4):445-454.
    Genetic information about one individual often has medical and reproductive implications for that individual’s relatives. There is a debate about whether policy on transmitting genetic information within the family should change to reflect this shared aspect of genetic information. Even if laws on medical confidentiality remain unchanged, there still remains the question of professional practice and whether, to what extent and by what means professionals should encourage disclosure within a family. The debate so far has tended to focus on who (...)

    Trouble with Biocitizenship : Duties Responsibility, Identity.Alexandra Plows & Paula Boddington - 2006 - Genomics, Society and Policy 2 (3):115-135.
    Genetic and other biotechnologies are starting to impact significantly upon society and individuals within it. Rose and Novas draw on an analysis of many patient groups to sketch out the broad notion of biocitizenship as a device for describing how the empowered and informed individual, group or network can engage with bioscience. In this paper, we examine critically the notion of biocitizenship, drawing on both sociological fieldwork that grounds the debate in the views of a large and varied group of (...)
