By the following decade, in 1964, the at Los Angeles (UCLA) involving outpatients with psychotic World Medical Association developed the Declaration of disorders who were withdrawn from active antipsychotic Helsinki, which was an attempt to modify and expand upon medications and observed for signs of relapse over time. This document classified research One patient ultimately committed suicide more than a year into clinical and nontherapeutic categories, and outlined after leaving the study, whereas a second had a significant the practice of consent that these types of research would exacerbation in psychotic symptoms, resulting in threats to require.

One of the foci has inspired international review of the ethics of human subject been the process of informed consent in studies involving research. Minority populations and those who may be vul- subjects who may have impairments in their abilities to nerable to exploitive research, such as the mentally ill, make decisions, such as patients with severe mental illnesses. In the United States, federal A 1995 report of the Advisory Committee on Human Ra commissions and agencies were created to address the con- diation Experiments (ACHRE) found that approximately cerns.

It is argued that this design has the advantage of each in general respond to lower doses than multiepisode pa- patient serving as his or her own control, allowing all pa- tients, and acute treatment usually requires higher doses tients to eventually receive active medication and increasing than maintenance treatment. Another design that is being increasingly utilized is the The applicability of this design varies depending on the adjunctive or add-on strategy. This is particularly useful nature of the disorder being studied, the time course of when subjects with partial or inadequate response are the response, and the vulnerability to relapse or symptom exac- focus of interest.

In this approach, no drug withdrawal is treatment trial in other disorders.
