A French law initially sponsored by Senator Claude Huriet and passed in 1988, which provides the legal framework for protecting participants involved in biomedical research, investigators performing the research, and persons or institutions sponsoring the research. The law defines covered research as “clinical trials or expedients organized and conducted on man with the objective of developing medical or biological knowledge”…which is similar to laws passed in other countries. It has been amended several times and now covers diagnostic, genetic, and transplantation research.
