The Rome Bioethics Summit
Capron, Alexander Morgan
Hastings Center Report. 1988 Aug/Sep; 18(4): S11-S13.
Scientists at the Fifth International Summit Conference on Bioethics, hosted by the Italian government in April 1988, were overwhelmingly supportive of efforts now underway to map and sequence the human genome because of its great benefit in preventing and treating disease. The meeting also concluded that somatic cell gene therapy should be classified with other medical experimentation and that medical indications or ethical justifications do not now exist for intentional manipulation of human germline cells.
