dc.description.abstractThe dilemma of whether or not to seek informed consent from patients in randomized clinical trials is explored. Despite the difficulties of explaining randomization to potential subjects and the danger that physicians and patients might refuse to participate in a trial where treatment is randomly assigned, the authors conclude that physicians are ethically and legally obligated to seek consent, although fully informed consent may not always be possible. The Zelen design for randomization and obtaining consent is outlined, suggestions are made for improving informed consent procedures, and the need to develop a code of conduct for British clinical trials is stressed.
