The MRCT Center submitted a response to a draft ethics charter intended to protect healthy volunteers in clinical trials published by the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (“INSERM”). The draft ethics charter consisted of 17 proposed articles; the MRCT Center offered general commentary on the entire charter and provided feedback and/or recommended new language on 14 of the 17 articles. Broadly, the MRCT Center wholly supports the development of an ethical charter to protect healthy trial participants. Our comments reflected our support for the broader endeavor while remaining dedicated to helping INSERM craft language that reflects their well-intentioned goal.
