Abstract


The rapid development of biomedical technology in China requires much research and a large number of human subjects have emerged in response. Chinese government has been sparing no efforts in protecting the rights of human subjects by the law and has made further achievements in 2016. This article finds that the laws are being improved, the ethical principles have been growing clearer, the validity of informed consent has been better guaranteed and the gap that the law fails to fill has been compensated for in legislation in China. Though legislative technique and legislation in this field need improvement, the legal guarantee of the rights of subjects is promising.
