A. Sneha Vardhani


Abstract: This paper attempts to review the latest guidelines passed by the Indian Council of Medical Research (2017) in the light of persisting ethical concerns in India. The Guidelines drafted is an ameliorated attempt to strike a balance between the progress of clinical trials and associated ethical concerns. There are a great number of clinical trials that are greatly benefiting human-kind yet, there is disquiet about unethical clinical trials transpiring. Though the severity of the problem has been acknowledged on paper, the profundity of the guidelines is impaired for reasons discussed. However, these guidelines can be valued as a superior step taken towards a better law tomorrow.
