into law, there-by creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human
Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. One of the charges to the
Commission was to identify the basic ethical principles that should underlie the conduct
of biomedical and behavioral research involving human subjects and to develop
guidelines which should be followed to assure that such research is conducted in
accordance with those principles. In carrying out the above, the Commission was
directed to consider: (i) the boundaries between biomedical and behavioral research
and the accepted and routine practice of medicine, (ii) the role of assessment of risk-
benefit criteria in the determination of the appropriateness of research involving human
subjects, (iii) appropriate guidelines for the selection of human subjects for participation
