Children in Medical Research

This chapter examines the issue of whether phase I pediatric oncology trials offer the prospect of direct benefit. Phase I research is carried out to determine toxicity; the possibility of direct benefit is secondary to the objectives of the study. Focusing exclusively on whether phase I trials could be interpreted as offering the prospect of direct benefit fails to acknowledge the moral relevance of the researchers’ intent. If intentions matter, then phase I studies cannot be said to offer the prospect of direct benefit.
