The authors reflect on the risk to randomized clinical trials partly by the laws, particularly the educational clinical trials wherein the resources are restricted and chances may be less than those related with novel experimental medications. The authors state that the policy have been so oppressive that they are overtaking the ones they are intended to safeguard and support. They conclude that without substantial amendments, the academic research enterprise could be stopped by the bureaucracy.
