The article deals with how the journal “Medicina e Morale” has faced ethics in clinical trials, which represents a very large and complex bioethical issue, but also deontological one. This area comprises many questions and the literature is huge. It has risen after unethical clinical trials that have shocked the public and have produced a big rethinking about it. In general, from the ’60s to the ’80s of the XXth century, an intense commitment and interest have prevailed on the elaboration of the reference principles and on theoretical reflection on various issues, such as informed consent, the ethical significance of clinical research, the protection of vulnerable people, the risk acceptability). Since the ’90s onwards the development of codes, regulations, guidelines – that have guided the development of the discipline in a procedural and also deontological sense – has increased, probably due to the large diffusion of ethics committees. Particularly, the journal “Medicine and Morale” has always been present on these issues, since the beginning of its history, creating an original voice in the debate, as well as a dissemination tool (especially in the pre-internet era) of national and especially international documentation. The journal has been, especially in the last thirty years, a real national, and sometimes international, benchmark, offering original suggestions which are then accepted in guidelines and regulations.
