The case of recruiting patients

Case by Pekka Louhiala; commentary by Pekka Louhiala and Urban Wiesing

To advance an initial understanding of the ethical problems confronted while conducting research with human beings, we begin with an advertisement that could be found anywhere in the modern industrial world. A physician, Dr X, from the University Hospital Y, is looking for patients for a clinical trial.

DO YOU SUFFER FROM ANXIETY?Have you been anxious or worried for over six months
without a real and obvious reason? Are you otherwise
healthy and not on medication?
Participants sought for drug research!A clinical study is to be conducted in Finland, in which a new kind
of drug will be tested for generalised anxiety disorder. The drugs
and visits to research physicians are free for research subjects.
Earlier research has shown that the drugs are safe.You can participate if:
You are 18 years or older
You suffer from, for example, restlessness, tremor, muscular
tension, breathlessness, palpitations, sweating, nervousness,
difficulties in concentration, difficulties in falling asleep
