Any person making a decision to participate or is already participating as a research participant (subject) in a clinical trial has the right to informed consent. The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa Act 108 of 1996: Section 12 (2) says “Everyone has the right to bodily and psychological integrity which includes the right – (c) not to be subjected to medical or scientific experiments without their informed consent’.

Clinical trials done without proper informed consent of participants or persons acting on their behalf are unconstitutional, unethical and unscientific.
