1. The Declaration of Helsinki drafted by the World Medical Congress is a statement of the ethical guidelines for human medical research to guide doctors and other participants in human medical research. Human medical research includes research on the human body itself and related data or information.
2. It is the duty of doctors to promote and protect human health. The knowledge and ethics of doctors are precisely to perform this duty.
3. The Geneva Declaration of the World Medical Congress restricts doctors with the language "The health of the patient must be our first consideration." The international standard of medical ethics declares: "Only when it is in the interests of the patient, the doctor can provide medical measures that may adversely affect the patient's physiology and psychology."
4. The advancement of medicine is based on research, which to a certain extent ultimately depends on experiments with human subjects.
5. In human medical research, consideration of subjects’ health should take precedence over scientific and social interests.
6. The main purpose of human medical research is to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment methods, and to improve the understanding of disease etiology and pathogenesis. Even the best prevention, diagnosis and treatment methods that have been proven should be continuously tested to test their effectiveness, efficiency, feasibility and quality through research.
7. In medical practice and medical research, most prevention, diagnosis and treatment involve risks and burdens.
8. Medical research should comply with ethical standards, respect all people and protect their health and rights. Some subjects are vulnerable groups and need special protection. The special needs of the economically and medically disadvantaged must be recognized. Particular attention should be paid to those subjects who cannot give or refuse informed consent, subjects who may only give informed consent under duress, subjects who do not benefit from the research, and those who receive treatment at the same time. Examiner.
9. Researchers must be aware of the ethical, legal and regulatory requirements for human research in their country, and must comply with international requirements. The ethics, laws and regulations of any country do not allow the reduction or cancellation of the protection provided for subjects in this declaration.
2. Basic principles of medical research
10. In medical research, it is the responsibility of doctors to protect the life and health of subjects and maintain their privacy and dignity.
11. Human medical research must comply with generally accepted scientific principles, and be based on a comprehensive understanding of scientific literature and related materials, and sufficient laboratory and animal tests (if necessary).
12. Research that may affect the environment must be carried out with due care, and the rights of laboratory animals used for research must be respected.
13. The design and implementation of each human trial should be clearly stated in the trial plan, and the trial plan should be submitted to the ethics approval committee for review, comment, guidance, and review and approval under appropriate circumstances. The ethics committee must be independent of the investigator and sponsor, and not be affected by any other aspects. The ethics committee should abide by the laws and regulations of the country where the experiment is conducted. The committee has the authority to supervise ongoing trials. Researchers are responsible for submitting monitoring data to the committee, especially data on all serious adverse events.研究人员还应向委员会提交其他资料以备审批，包括有关资金、申办者、研究机构以及其它对受试者潜在的利益冲突或鼓励的资料。
