AS MEMBERS of the National Bioethics Advisory Commission (NBAC), we are grateful to Oldham et al for their careful and thoughtful analysis and critique of the NBAC's most recent report.1 Their analysis demonstrates a clear grasp of both what the NBAC recommended and what reasoning lay behind these recommendations. We are pleased that they agree that many—perhaps most—of the NBAC's recommendations identify valuable protections for potential research subjects. We offer a few observations and responses to their article.
