Preview

This chapter presents a 1990 commentary on two clinical trials conducted in Kuala Lumpur and the US. A comparison of the trials provides supporting evidence for the claim that there has been considerable improvement in safeguards to protect the rights of patients enrolled in such therapeutic experiments. It further says that doctors have a ‘study design obligation’ in the conduct of trials.
