Current Management of Neonatal Liver Tumors

Author(s): Max R. Langham, Wayne L. Furman and Israel Fernandez-Pineda

This review is focused on the special issues and challenges confronting physicians and surgeons caring for an unborn child, or a newborn with a liver tumor. Liver tumors at this age are very rare and they make it difficult for pediatric surgeons to gain experience necessary to obtain good results. On the other hand, adult hepatobiliary surgeons faced with a fetus or infant with a liver mass are ill equipped to care for the patient even if they have done a high volume of adult liver surgery and are expert in the field. Often a team approach is the best solution.

Ethical Considerations in Conducting Pediatric and Neonatal Research in Clinical Pharmacology 

Author(s): Michelle Roth-Cline and Robert M. Nelson

Abstract: The critical need for pediatric research on drugs and biological products underscores the responsibility to ensure that children are enrolled in clinical research that is both scientifically necessary and ethically sound. In this chapter, we review key ethical considerations concerning the participation of children. We review a basic ethical framework to guide pediatric research, and suggest how this framework might be operationalized in linking science and ethics. Topics examined include: the status of children as a vulnerable population; the appropriate balance of risk and potential benefit in research; and parental permission and child assent to participate in research.
