Biomedical research in developing countries implies the same ethical elements as biomedical research in general. The existing conventions and guidelines, however, address only to a limited extent the fact that these general issues are often pushed to the extreme in developing country contexts. This article focuses on informed consent, the obligation not to cause harm and the benefits of research in a context of cultural differences and unequal access to resources. Furthermore, the key ethical challenges regarding research priorities and allocation of research funds are mentioned.
