Inconsistency and Institutional Review Boards
Katz, Martin D.
JAMA. 1982 Jul 9; 248(2): 197-202.
The results of an investigation of institutional review board (IRB) decision making are reported. The inconsistencies found in the 22 IRBs evaluated are explored. Summaries are included of their decisions and objections to three test protocols submitted for evaluation. Ethical, methodological, and informed consent objections are detailed. The authors question the adequacy of IRB decision making and suggest that a new approach to the review process may be in order. (KIE abstract)
