    Circumcision Registry Promotes Precise Research and Fosters Informed Parental Decisions.Robert S. Van Howe, Morten Frisch, Peter W. Adler & J. Steven Svoboda - 2019 - BMC Medical Ethics 20 (1):6.
    In 2017 Ploug and Holm argued that anonymizing individuals in the Danish circumcision registry was insufficient to protect these individuals from what they regard as the potential harms of being in the registry. We argue that Ploug and Holm’s fears in each of the areas are misguided, not supported by the evidence, and could interfere with the gathering of accurate data. The extent of the risks and harms associated with ritual circumcision is not well known. The anonymized personal health data (...)

    Response to Vogelstein: How the 2012 AAP Task Force on Circumcision Went Wrong.Robert S. Van Howe - 2018 - Bioethics 32 (1):77-80.
    Vogelstein cautions medical organizations against jumping into the fray of controversial issues, yet proffers the 2012 American Academy of Pediatrics' Task Force policy position on infant male circumcision as ‘an appropriate use of position-statements.’ Only a scratch below the surface of this policy statement uncovers the Task Force's failure to consider Vogelstein's many caveats. The Task Force supported the cultural practice by putting undeserved emphasis on questionable scientific data, while ignoring or underplaying the importance of valid contrary scientific data. Without (...)

    Neonatal Pain Relief and the Helsinki Declaration.Robert S. Van Howe & J. Steven Svoboda - 2008 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 36 (4):803-823.
    The Helsinki Declaration is the universally accepted standard for ethical behavior in research involving human subjects. The Declaration calls for research studies to compare new therapies to the best current therapies. Despite this standard, multiple studies of pain relief interventions in newborns have recruited placebo controls instead of active controls using the best current therapy. These studies are evaluated using the standards required by the Helsinki Declaration, and the reasons for the ethical shortcomings of these studies are explored.
