Topics include: Experimental therapeutics Ethics of research Rational introduction of a new drug Need for statistics Types of trial: design, size Meta-analysis Pharmacoepidemiology EXPERIMENTAL THERAPEUTICS As the number of potential medicines produced increases, the problem of whom to test them on grows.
Payment of subjects in clinical trials Healthy volunteers are usually paid to take part in a clinical trial. The rationale is that they will not benefit from treatment received and should be compensated for discomfort and inconvenience. There is a fine dividing line between this and a financial inducement, but it is unlikely that more than a small minority of healthy volunteer studies would now take place without a 'fee for service' provision, including 'out of pocket' expenses.
