G3P - Good Privacy Protection Practice in Clinical Research: Principles of Pseudonymization and Anonymization

Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
Free sample

Establishing ethical and privacy protection aspects in scientific research, especially in medical research, has a long history. Medical data are usually more sensible than other personal data and require therefore an even higher degree of protection than other personal data. In recent research projects genetic evaluations become more and more important and trigger thereby new and continuing activities in the context of data protection. Genetic data as a subset of medical data are the most sensible category of personal data and require therefore the highest degree of data protection.
The book provides a systematic and itemized approach to data protection in clinical research including the handling of genetic material, genetic samples as well as derived genetic data and the subsequent secure storage of them. The set up of different kinds of clinical trials having in addition a genetic part, the concept of a genetic informed consent as well as collection schemes of samples are described in detail. Technical requirements and aspects of data protection including pseudonymization and anonymization procedures taking into account ethics committees requirements as well as the underlying legal framework are also presented.
Without any exception, all principles and methods presented are best practices, repeatedly applied in different clinical environments and by no means theoretical considerations.

One of Wall Street Journal’s "Best Books for Science Lovers" in 2015

Science is on the cusp of a revolutionary breakthrough. We now understand more about aging—and how to prevent and reverse it—than ever before.

In recent years, our understanding of the nature of aging has grown exponentially, and dramatic life extension—even age reversal—has moved from science fiction to real possibility.

Dr. Michael Fossel has been in the forefront of aging research for decades and is the author of the definitive textbook on human aging. In The Telomerase Revolution, he takes us on a detailed but highly accessible scientific journey, providing startling insights into the nature of human aging.

Twenty years ago, there was still considerable debate of the nature of human aging, with a variety of competing theories in play. But scientific consensus is forming around the telomere theory of aging. The essence of this theory is that human aging is the result of cellular aging. Every time a cell reproduces, its telomeres (the tips of the chromosomes) shorten. With every shortening of the telomeres, the cell’s ability to repair its molecules decreases. It ages. Human aging is the result of the aging of the body’s trillions of cells.

But some of our cells don’t age. Sex cells and stem cells can reproduce indefinitely, without aging, because they create telomerase. Telomerase re-lengthens the telomeres, keeping these cells young.

The Telomerase Revolution describes how telomerase will soon be used as a powerful therapeutic tool, with the potential to dramatically extend life spans and even reverse human aging. Telomerase-based treatments are already available, and have shown early promise, but much more potent treatments will become available over the next decade.

The Telomerase Revolution is the definitive work on the latest science on human aging, covering both the theory and the clinical implications. It takes the reader to the forefront of the upcoming revolution in human medicine.

When it comes to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression, everything you believe is a lie.

With research gleaned from the National Institutes of Health, T.S. Wiley and Bent Formby deliver staggering findings: Americans really are sick from being tired. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression are rising in our population. We’re literally dying for a good night’s sleep.

Our lifestyle wasn’t always this way. It began with the invention of the lightbulb.

When we don’t get enough sleep in sync with seasonal light exposure, we fundamentally alter a balance of nature that has been programmed into our physiology since day one. This delicate biological rhythm rules the hormones and neurotransmitters that determine appetite, fertility, and mental and physical health. When we rely on artificial light to extend our day until 11 p.m., midnight, and beyond, we fool our bodies into living in a perpetual state of summer. Anticipating the scarce food supply and forced inactivity of winter, our bodies begin storing fat and slowing metabolism to sustain us through the months of hibernation and hunger that never arrive. Our own survival instinct, honed over millennia, is now killing us.

Wiley and Formby also reveal:
-That studies from our own government research prove the role of sleeplessness in diabetes, heart disease, cancer, infertility, mental illness, and premature aging
-Why the carbohydrate-rich diets recommended by many health professionals are not only ridiculously ineffective but deadly
-Why the lifesaving information that can turn things around is one of the best-kept secrets of our day.

Lights Out is one wake-up call none of us can afford to miss.

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Sport - Sportpädagogik, Didaktik, Note: 2,0, Staatliches Studienseminar für das Lehramt an Gymnasien Bad Kreuznach , Veranstaltung: 2. Staatsexamen für das Lehramt an Gymnasien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Entwicklungsland Deutschland.“ So lautet die Überschrift einer Seite des Sportteils der Zeitung „Die Rheinpfalz“ vom Montag, den 18. Mai. 2009. Thematisiert wird in diesem Bericht die Sportart Futsal in Deutschland, die hierzulande noch relativ unbekannt ist. Viele können sich darunter nichts vorstellen. „Futsal ist eine Variante des Hallenfußballs, aber nicht irgendeine, sondern die offizielle der FIFA1 und UEFA2, die Hallenfußballversion, die sich überall auf der Welt durchgesetzt hat – außer in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz.“3 Es ist „Fußball in der Sporthalle in seiner schönsten Form“4. In Deutschland fristet Futsal ein Nischendasein. So führt der DFB Futsal unter Breiten- und Freizeitsport, während in vielen anderen europäischen und außereuropäischen Ländern schon seit langem Profiligen existieren. In Deutschland ist dieser Sport erst langsam auf dem Vormarsch und vielerorts, selbst in Fußballkreisen, noch gänzlich unbekannt. Futsal, ursprünglich „Futebol de Salao“, stammt aus Südamerika. Alle weltbekannten brasilianischen Fußballer (z. B. Ronaldinho, Kaka, usw.) haben in ihrer Jugend und damit in ihrer frühen fußballerischen Ausbildung Futsal gespielt. Sie sind erst später zum Fußball gekommen. Futsal zeichnet sich durch rasante Balltechnik, fintenreiches Dribbling, fast körperloses und dennoch kampfbetontes Spiel aus. Schwerere Verletzungen durch Zweikämpfe, wie sie im Fußball immer wieder vorkommen, sind beim Futsal durch das weitestgehend körperlose Spiel nahezu ausgeschlossen. Ein Mangel an Technik ist, im Gegensatz zum Fußball, nicht durch eine harte Spielweise wettzumachen. 2006 startete Nike die Kampagne „Joga Bonito“, was übersetzt soviel wie „spiele schön“ bedeutet. Sie sollte die brasilianische Fußballkultur zum Ausdruck bringen. In den Werbespots, angeführt von der französischen Fußballlegende Eric Canto-na, waren zahlreiche Fußball-Superstars zu sehen. Die Kampagne wurde von einer weltweiten Turnierserie begleitet. Es wurde mit einem Futsal nach Futsal-Regeln 3 gegen 3 gespielt. Schön zu spielen, Freude und Spaß am Spiel zu haben, sind grundlegende Elemente des Futsal. Sie stehen weit vor dem Leistungsgedanken an erster Stelle. Es geht um die Freude an der Bewegung, Spaß und Fair-Play, alles Werte, die auch für den Schulsport grundlegend sind.
