The present paper was intended to assess some bioethical aspects of public health and the biomedical research but seen from a more global perspective.In addition to addressing general ethical aspects, new recently incorporated terms were mentioned such as equity and ethical imperialism, and besides, the main motivations of and limitations to the performance of clinical and epidemiological research studies in developing countries were examined.
