Science in society The Language of Regenerative Medicine As we have described, most regenerative medicine research is still in its early stages; thus, it is contributing to the growing literature and lively scholarly discussion about translational research, also referred to as “bench-to-bedside” research and, when it is time to begin clinical studies, as “first-inhuman” trials. The terminology used to name and describe translational biotechnology research can give rise to an unexpected ethical issue when it appears to signal successful treatment instead of research on novel interventions of unproven efficacy.

34 g A fter the Genome Following Up Some other characteristics of regenerative medicine interventions—best exemplified by the need for long-term follow-up—can potentially complicate what might otherwise seem like simple determinations. Once again, regenerative medicine is not unique in this regard; it is, instead, uniquely illuminative of a more pervasive challenge in translational research. ” Cell-based interventions may need long-term follow-up so that investigators can learn about patterns of bioaccumulation and their potential effects, such as insertional mutagenesis, as has been seen in some gene transfer research, or other tumorigenic effects, as may be seen when some types of stem cells are used.

The Reagan/G. H. W. Bush years contributed several other components to the modern opposition to science. One is the politicization of disease. it was during these years that the HiV epidemic broke out, an occurrence, one might think, that would lead to a reaffirmation of the value of a scientifically based fight against disease. But from the start, conservatives perceived AiDS as an illness contracted by, and confined to, gays and drug abusers. 46 g A fter the Genome This view of AiDS as a just punishment for immoral behavior was only slowly reversed, partly as a result of the impassioned efforts of AiDS activists, but it contributed to delays in responding to the disease.
