This chapter presents a 1987 commentary about medical research with children. It criticizes the unbridled enthusiasm of innovators in the growing field of neonatal medicine. It argues that the highest standards of evidence should be maintained in studies involving infants, and since there is no shortcut to this goal, practitioners must be prepared to be patient.
