[Editorial] Strengthening clinical research in children and young people

“The time has come to protect children and young people through research not from research”, said Bobbie Farsides, Professor of Bioethics at Brighton and Sussex Medical School and Chair of the Working Party for the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, which published its report Children and clinical research: ethical issues on May 14. “It will always be easier to say ‘no’ to research with children on the grounds that it’s too difficult, but we should challenge the idea that it is acceptable to continue to offer health care to children without seeking to improve the evidence base for many of the treatments provided”, added Farsides.
