Attitudes toward clinical trials, as assessed through questionnaires completed by 104 cancer patients, 84 cardiology patients, and a control group of 107 members of the general public, revealed no differences of opinion either by subgroup or by demographic variables. Most respondents believed patients should serve as research subjects regardless of medical status, and that participation helps future patients and increases medical knowledge while providing superior care in an ethical setting. However, responses concerning potential personal participation revealed more self concern and less altruism. (KIE abstract)
