Petrini settings and broader populations (Institute of Medicine 2009). Randomized controlled trials constitute the mandatory bridge between the preclinical discovery of new medicinal products and their general uses. An RCT must take place before new research treatments can be made available to the public.

Impartial rule theory, raised by Danner Clouser and Bernard Gert, has been developed as a general ethical theory that can be “transliterated” into the culture of a profession, such as medicine (Danner Clouser and Gert 1990).
