Public Stem Cell Banks: Considerations of Justice in Stem Cell Research and Therapy

Hastings Center Report 33 (6):13-27 (2003)

Abstract

If stem cell-based therapies are developed, we will likely confront a difficult problem of justice: for biological reasons alone, the new therapies might benefit only a limited range of patients. In fact, they might benefit primarily white Americans, thereby exacerbating long-standing differences in health and health care.
