Human & Animals Right Stat.


When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical stan-dards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutio-nal and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (5). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accorda-nce with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body exp-licitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experi-ments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institu-tional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.
