They express more doubt as to safety, transparency of medical research, study finds

TUESDAY, Feb. 3 (HealthDay News) -- Black parents are more likely than white parents to distrust medical research, which may explain why black children are frequently underrepresented in studies.

So conclude University of Pittsburgh researchers who surveyed 190 parents (140 black, 50 white) who brought their children to a primary-care clinic.

  • Believe that doctors won't make full disclosures regarding their child's participation (24.6 percent vs. 10 percent)
  • Think that research participants would be favored and receive better medical care (48.6 percent vs. 28 percent).

The study also found that education level was associated with distrust of medical studies. A high level of distrust was expressed by 74 percent of those with less than a high school education, compared to 44 percent of college graduates.

The findings appear in the February issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.
