We believe that if a child is injured or becomes ill during a study, the institution and its investigators should provide directly or indirectly the free medical care required to treat the condition. Likewise, if unexpected medical symptoms arise during the course of the investigation, the institution should attempt to diagnose the etiology of the condition. WITHDRA WAL FROM STUDY The child and the adult consenting for him should know that the subject can withdraw from the study at any time and that withdrawal will not jeopardize the subject's medical care (American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, 1978; American Academy of Pediatrics, 1977; Horowitz, 1977).

The Hippocratic Oath requires that physicians benefit patients, as well as refrain from causing them harm. One major justification of biomedical research is the production of positive benefits for society (Beauchamp and Childress, 1979). We will discuss guidelines for informed consent which not only protect children's right to self-determination, but also allow society to meet its research obligations to children. Adults and animals could be substituted for children, and are in many instances, but there are limitations to both (National Commission, 1978).
