Abstract

Various codes, regulations and guidelines have been established that outline what information must be provided to human subjects to insure that their participation in clinical drug studies is informed as well as voluntary. Recently questions have been raised as to whether written consent forms guarantee participants are making autonomous, informed decisions. The purpose of this study was to determine how much of the consent research subjects read in relation to selected variables. Seventy-seven percent of the participants reported that they read the entire consent form, but results suggest that 30--40% may not understand the study they are in. A question not answered is, do research subjects in clinical drug studies know information pertinent to the study in which they are participating.
