European Council of Medical Orders

The World Medical Association turns to Members of the European Parliament - February 2013

The WMA, to which several CEOM participating organisations belong, addressed Members of the European Parliament on occasion of the committee reading of a draft Regulation on Clinical Trials. The new regulation would no longer require the consent of an ethics committee before trials could start testing new drugs on humans. WMA President Cecil Wilson highlights on his blog the essential role of ethical committees in responsible clinical research.
