Abstract

The issue of the protection of communities in clinical research first arose 10 years ago in studies conducted in technologically developing countries by scientists from technologically developed nations. The question was, which ethical standards ought to apply, those of the Western investigators or local standards?

Notes

Dr. Charles Weijer is currently a faculty member at The University of Western Ontario.
