To the Editor Dr Wong and colleagues discussed the issues that may arise when participants in biomedical research are provided with their individual research results, such as whether and how to return personal research data (including incidental findings) to participants.1 As the authors pointed out, studies that are returning individual results can provide structured environments to test various approaches, which will inform the development and adaptation of return policies in the future.
