PEREZ PACAREU, Marisela; MOREJóN DEL ROSARIO, Yanet; SUAREZ RODRIGUEZ, Gloria  y  RODRIGUEZ CARBAJAL, Aleima. The Informed Consent in Allergology from a Scientific, Technological and Social Perspective. Medisur [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.5, pp.581-600. ISSN 1727-897X.

This paper reviews the application of the informed consent within the specialty of allergology in procedures (skin tests), therapeutic interventions (immunotherapy) and research (clinical trials) from a scientific, technological and social perspective, based on the advances achieved in Cuba in recent years to obtain better allergenic extracts for testing, high-quality vaccines and new drugs to benefit the allergic patient. It is demonstrated that when applying the informed consent in this specialty, the humanistic social precepts are respected by directing health actions to respect the integrity of the patients against possible risks, offering the option to use immunotherapy and respecting their autonomy in research. It benefits the patients by improving their lifestyles to control the allergic disease, improve their health and quality of life. Furthermore, it promotes social justice by making available these services to the entire population.

Palabras clave : informed consent; allergy and immunologia.
