Extract

There are two “Sounding Board” articles published in the September 3, 1998, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine that at first glance, do not seem to have much relationship to one another.1,,2 The first article describes ethical guidelines for practicing physicians to prevent financial considerations from interfering with decisions about medical care. The second article reviews the process of taking basic science research and translating it for clinical purposes. The terms“ translational research” and clinical “evaluative research” are introduced to describe the important process that takes discoveries from bench to bedside.
