ABSTRACT
The article explores the practice by clinician investigators of overriding the protocol in favor of the medical care of a patient. According to the author, a rigidly-designed clinical trial prevents physician researchers from doing proper care management. The author also cites clinical researchers who will not get qualified subjects because they are already doing well on traditional therapies.
