NuGO Guideline 11
Individual research volunteers ought not to benefit financially. There are two reasons for this:
- an ethical background: a human body and its parts are not for sale and
- a legal background: to avoid exploitation of an individual.
In addition, the application of financial incentives is against the rule of complete voluntariness because it may put a stronger pressure on socially disadvantaged.
Benefit sharing must take place on the societal level. Financial gain from this kind of research should be re-invested in further research, welfare, or other.
