PROBLEM: This study compares the birth defect rate in women using preconception TNF-α inhibitor (Adalimumab) during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle to a similar population of women not using these immunologic therapies. METHOD OF STUDY: One hundred subfertile women aged ≤38years experienced ongoing pregnancies of which 36 resulted in twin pregnancies (136 babies). These successful cycles were divided into two different treatment groups: group I comprised 31 cycles (23 ICSI) using preconception Adalimumab (Humira) with or without pre- or post-conception intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) (last dose of Humira given 65...

Advances in surgical techniques, cardiac anesthesia, and pre- and postoperative care have made the surgical treatment of complex congenital cardiac disease available to an ever-increasing number of children, including those with a wide range of extracardiac anomalies. Over the past few decades cardiac surgery in infants and children with syndrome-associated physical and mental conditions has undergone a remarkable change, with previously held norms abandoned for new standards. The social, ethical, and clinical appropriateness of these changes has been the focus of much attention...

A conference was held at the State University of New York at Stony Brook in October 1984 to discuss the controversy concerning treatment of a newborn with severe congenital defects that became known as the Baby Jane Doe case. Fox provides some background information on the case to introduce a set of of six articles consisting of papers delivered at the conference. These articles deal with historical aspects of the treatment debate (Stanley J. Reiser), problems of clinical decision making (John M. Freeman), the legal issues involved (John A...

In medical ethics, principles have an important but frequently overextended role. The need for exact answers and moral formulae sometimes leads to the misuse of principles, such that they usurp the central place of persons and become ends in themselves. The Baby Jane Doe case is discussed as a prominent instance of both the proper uses and abuses of principles. A more fitting role for principles is described and illustrated, stressing the use of principles as tools of moral discernment and the time-laden character of moral judgments...

Standard ethical approaches to decision-making which are based on rights, duties, obligations, beneficence, or best interests often seem inadequate or insufficient when applied to the individual infant, as in the case of Baby Jane Doe. A process approach which takes account of moral theory, but which allows tolerance, within limits, for a possible range of decisions, would appear to offer more reasonable decisions. However, any decision must be based on good facts and accurate prognosis. Pending the availability of medical records on Baby Jane Doe, judgment of the decisions made at Stony Brook must be suspended...

A review of national television, magazine, and newspaper coverage of the case of Baby Jane Doe indicates that most of it lacked perspective and context; stories were generally incomplete and often imprecise; reporting was sometimes inaccurate; and overall, inadequate attention was paid to the medical, legal, philosophical, and social implications of the case. Human-interest and political elements of the story were generally well covered. Even after taking account of the pressures and constraints of daily and weekly news reporting, we conclude that the print press and television could have done a better job without devoting more space or time to the story...

In the early 1980s, the leadership of the antiabortion movement became involved in a campaign to establish legal rights to extraordinary medical care for seriously handicapped newborns. Armed with political contacts in the Reagan administration and Congress, and allied with advocates for the disabled, the antiabortion movement searched for a test case to guide through the courts. Antiabortion advocate Lawrence Washburn found such a case in Baby Jane Doe, who was being treated at Stony Brook Medical Center. The movement went on to amend the Child Abuse Act to include protections for handicapped newborns...

Beginning in 1982 the Reagan administration tried to impose federal regulations (based on the civil rights approach of Section 504) on the medical treatment of handicapped newborns in the nation's hospitals. After issuing three sets of regulations, the administration found itself rebuffed by the courts and in ill repute with providers and parts of the public, especially after its widely publicized intervention in the case of Baby Jane Doe illustrated the pitfalls of federal regulation in complex medical decisions...
