Media's & Human Subject Participation

ABSTRACT: Study of the Media's Potential Influence on Prospective Research Participants' Understanding of and Motivations for Participation in a High-Profile Phase I Trial

PURPOSE: To describe prospective participants' initial source of information about, understanding of, and motivation to participate in a phase I clinical trial of the antiangiogenesis agent human recombinant endostatin.

CONCLUSION: Media coverage prompted prospective participants to contact their physicians but did not seem to hinder understanding nor could it be shown to heighten their hope for personal benefit.
