BRAUNHOLTZ, JENNIFER JACKSON, J I M T H O R N T O N and J E N N Y H E W I S O N SUMMARY We have reviewed the literature on the ethics of clinical trials, and found that there is little agreement about what constitutes moral justification for trials.

E. those of the ‘average’ patient, or ‘implied consent’, randomisation may still be ethical. If a clinician thinks, that on this point at least, his or her own views are ‘typical’, then all they have to do is follow the gold standard, and treat the patient as they would themselves wish to be treated. We believe, however, that it is necessary to add one further caveat – under these circumstances, no altruism whatever should be assumed – to act otherwise, on such vulnerable patients (children, people with severe mental illness, or the unconscious) would be tantamount to exploiting the vulnerable, and this would find little support in the moral literature.
