Abstract [en]

The issue of comparative effectiveness research (CER) is assessed from an ethical point of view by comparison with the main ethical frameworks and by analysis of some of the relevant institutional documents. Two main conclusions emerge from the study: no ethical framework seems able to objectively and definitively assess CER; no institutional document, neither national nor international, has specifically assessed the ethical implications of CER. Nevertheless, this vacuum regarding CER raises relevant ethical concerns, thus revealing the necessity and urgency of an ethical evaluation of CER.
