Consent and Randomized Clinical Trials: Are There Moral or Design Problems?
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1986 Nov; 11(4): 317-345.
It is argued that randomized clinical trials are not intrinsically morally problematic; while they are not ideal tools, they are a powerful way to eliminate bias and prejudice. When patient-subject choice is introduced, problems of experimental design result, but informed consent may be incorporated in a variety of ways to accommodate good design. The author examines seven randomized clinical trial designs and concludes that there is no inherent incompatibility between the trials and the promotion of patients' rights and welfare.
