ABSTRACT
Summary: The developing world is entering new territory with rapid advancements in biomedical research and science. In order to ensure the protection of those most vulnerable, bioethics must experience a similar expansion and progression worldwide. Inequalities in healthcare remain an influential issue to redress on a global scale, and may provide an opportunity to induce a paradigm shift in the worldwide approach to medical research. In particular, clinical trials performed in a nation different to that of the sponsoring institution must appreciate any underlying ethical conflict and ensure that the volunteers involved are treated with the best attainable and sustainable standards.
