Abstract

Abstract:

Prejudice (unjustifiable bias) in the selection of the subjects of scientific research is morally unacceptable. Indeed, the occurrence of prejudice in the Tuskegee Syphilis Study prompted the production of the Belmont Report, setting out the basic ethical principles for the protection of human subjects of biomedical and behavioral research. The relevance of the Belmont Report to the protection of all animal subjects of scientific research is discussed.
