Lancet. 1982 May 29; 1(8283): 1233-1236.
The work of a British ethical review committee from 1971 to 1981 is reviewed with a focus on the impact of the committee on research design. Reported results include: an increased number of research proposals needing modification, more stringent disclosure and consent requirements, a decline in projects rejected due to problems in subject selection, and an increased awareness among researchers of risks to subjects. Also discussed are composition of the ethics committee, publication of research results, and attitudes of the committee and of researchers. (KIE abstract)
