Payment in challenge studies from an economics perspective


Ambühl, Sandro; Ockenfels, Axel; Roth, Alvin E (2020). Payment in challenge studies from an economics perspective. Journal of Medical Ethics, 46(12):831-832.

Abstract

We largely agree with Grimwade et al’s1 conclusion that challenge trial participants may ethically be paid, including for risk. Here, we add further arguments, clarify some points from the perspective of economics and indicate areas where (behavioural) economists can support the development of a framework for ethically justifiable payment. Our arguments apply to carefully constructed and monitored controlled human infection model (CHIM) trials that have been appropriately reviewed and approved.
