News in Bioethics and Biotechnology

This file ( contains links to all papers published in eubios journals and books, some other papers and books, and news.
The combined bimonthly news sections are listed topic by topic from Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics Vol 5+ (1995+) and the Eubios Ethics Institute Newsletter Vol 1-4 (1991- 1994). The number of journals reviewed in the period 1991-2005 was close to 1000. Please note that increasing numbers of journals are on-line, and so since 2006 the News updates have not been made. Also see the links list. Comments are written in text form together with recent references. In many cases a paper may be interesting in several topics but generally it is only listed in one topic. The entries are prepared by Darryl Macer for Eubios Ethics Institute. They are on-line at the Bangkok site < >

As time permits the files will be improved, but the best way to search the longer files is to make a copy and use a find command for key words. The last update of topical files was 11 May 2007.

This list also includes references to other web sites, and more information is welcome, please send to:
