  A pharmaceutical company approaches you about a clinical research project involving your office patients. Your patients with high blood pressure will be eligible to be treated with a new medication that has just been released by the FDA. The object of the study is to evaluate risks and benefits of this medication in an unselected office population. The pharmaceutical company will pay $250 per patient for the expenses generated by the study, and one year’s salary for a data manager and will supply the drug free of charge. Meetings to discuss the initiation of the study and follow-up results will be held in New Orleans and Honolulu. Your spouse will be invited as a company’s guest to attend these meetings since they will take away from home.

Participating in the study would be considered appropriate professional behavior if:

a. Your patients signed an informed consent.
b. Your patients sign an informed consent and your partners approve the study.
c. An oversight committee of the hospital where you have privileges or your regional medical society
approves the study.
d. None of the above.
