Example text

Answering even an important question, or testing an important untested or inadequately tested hypothesis, does not ensure the appropriate design of a study question or hypothesis. Timing is another critical factor. It may be that extending the research to humans is premature. The risk of harming a subject may be too great because available knowledge is insufficient to ensure a safety level acceptable for human subjects. Balance between the ends of science and protection of the fights and welfare of human subjects must be tipped in the right direction.

Each and every protocol balances specific risks for existing research participants against the potential for benefits to society. Individual investigators, reviewers, and IRBs or IECs will come to different conclusions. Continued 52 Chapter 4 / Designing a Clinical Research Study How many pre-clinical studies will be enough? 9 What species need to be studied? 9 How much information about toxicity in healthy persons should be accrued before moving from healthy persons to patient volunteers? 9 These are the kinds of refined ethical considerations that must be made in relation to the differences between direct-benefit and no-direct-benefit research.

This equal uncertainty principle is known as equipoise. Only when equipoise exists across arms in a randomized trial is it ethically acceptable to use this design. Most randomized studies are double-blinded. This means that neither the subject nor the investigator knows to which study arm the subject has been assigned. Blinding reduces bias and the possibility that expectations of investigator and/or subject will influence study outcomes. For subject safety, studies that involve randomizing subjects to different treatment interventions are beginning to require a review panel, usually known as a data and safety monitoring board (DSMB), to be formally connected to the trial to break the blind at specified times and to evaluate continuing safety or efficacy.
