The limitations of "vulnerability" as a protection for human research participants

, : The limitations of "vulnerability" as a protection for human research participants. American Journal of Bioethics 4(3): 44-49

Vulnerability is one of the least examined concepts in research ethics. Vulnerability was linked in the Belmont Report to questions of justice in the selection of subjects. Regulations and policy documents regarding the ethical conduct of research have focused on vulnerability in terms of limitations of the capacity to provide informed consent.
