Efforts to obtain Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of new drugs on a "fast track" are not without hazards for physicians and other providers involved in conducting clinical research. Increasingly, research sponsors have implemented competitive subject recruitment techniques that encourage investigators and their staffs to move studies along rapidly, but may also raise concerns about subject safety.
