Federal Legislation on Human Research Protections

Proposed Federal Legislation

Steps in the Right Direction

The National Institutes of Health Office of Legislative Policy and Analysis maintains an excellent index of summaries of proposed legislation likely to affect NIH. Available from http://olpa.od.nih.gov/legislation/


Steps in the Wrong Direction

H.R. 2085 and S 1410 are the latest proposed bills in the perennial attempt to remove what little protection HHS and FDA afford human subjects and further restrict existing flimsy mechanisms for enforcing accountability in research. The bills are giant steps in the wrong direction.

A sensible overview of the issues: Mills C. Mainstreaming the Alternatives When Complementary and Alternative Medicines Become Westernized. 13 Alb. L.J. Sci. and Tech. 775.
