The article presents the views of experts on the vulnerability of clinical research subjects. Helen McGough, who works with the Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI) as a writer and editor of modules, asserts that researchers do not recognize that potential subjects may view the invitation to participate in research as weighted. Monika Markowitz of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, stresses the responsibility of the investigators to be aware of the subjects' vulnerabilities.
