ABSTRACT
This paper reviews the ethical aspects of psychiatric research in India. There were a few studies on research on informed consent and capacity in psychiatric practice. Using the key words 'Consent Psychiatry India' 35 references were found in PubMed, of which 5 related to mental health. Using the key words 'Decision making and capacity India' 10 references were found in PubMed, but none were related to mental health. Using the key words: 'ethics, placebo controlled trials, India,' eight reports were found listed in Pubmed. Additional searches identified comments by editors and rapid responses. Numerous concerns were raised by the authors but these lacked evidence and were reported multiple times by same groups. Studies on informed consent report the possibility of involving patients in clinical drug trials, with valid informed consent. There is a need for more systematic studies on ethics related topics in psychiatric practice and research in India.
