Agency updates informed consent guidance for clinical trials

DIA Global SmartBrief | Jul 24, 2014

The FDA last week released an updated version of its informed consent guidance for clinical trials that was first issued in 1998. Among the changes in the document is the addition of a section urging studies to inform participants of the trial results. Despite the updates, several issues remain, such as a failure to discuss what should be done if participants lack the ability to consent themselves, including children, unconscious people and those who are mentally ill.
