This book addresses the pressing issues involved with the ethical conduct of research in one developing world region - the
Arab Region. Clinical research has soared in the developing world -as pharmaceutical companies continue their search for regions
with large, treatment naive populations - including the Arab region, and has profound implications for the health and the
economies for the area. The ethical issues involved with the conduct of such research, however, have so far not been adequately
addressed. This volume presents the issues regarding research ethics and research governance that have relevance for health
authorities, regulators, industry, and academia. As a multi-authored volume it includes both international and local experts
on ethical issues in research, representing all stakeholders, thus presenting a balanced view on this timely topic.
