Individual Cases and the Scientific Method — A Conflict? Legal Aspects of Cancer Clinical Trials in the Federal Republic of Germany

  • W. H. Eberbach
Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 111)


In this paper I should like to approach the topic of cancer clinical trials from two directions. In the first part I will give an exposition of the current legal position. This part will contain information of a kind which in my opinion is absolutely necessary for all scientists involved in clinical trials. In the second part I will then try to approach the subject from a different and substantially more critical, perhaps even provocative, starting-point.
