5 Clinical trials and pediatric patients Clinical trials involving children present unique challenges. 30 For example, some diseases are specific only to children. In addition, children are physiologically different from adults and metabolize drugs differently, meaning safety and efficacy data emerging from adult clinical trials cannot reliably be extrapolated to children. There are many instances where children unexpectedly have very different side-effect profiles from adults. Complicating factors involved when children participate in clinical trials include the fact that children are minors who do not have legal capacity to consent to participate in research, and they are a particularly vulnerable population.

The basis for most claims for failure to obtain informed consent is negligence. The traditional standard for judging whether consent is informed is the professional standard, which means what a reasonable practitioner would disclose under similar circumstances. However, with decisions of more recent vintage such as Canterbury v. Spence6,7 a new standard was adopted, which reflects patient autonomy and requires the physician to disclose what a reasonable person in the patient’s circumstances, as opposed to a reasonable physician, would consider material to decide whether or not to consent.
