Vindication for the SUPPORT trial

Investigators of the SUPPORT trial have been criticized and accused (by parents and by the Office of Human Research Protection) of causing harm to babies enrolled in the trial even though this study was approved by multiple institutional review boards. A lawsuit was filed against the investigators as well, with claims of negligence and failure to obtain informed consent. A recent court decision dismissed these charges, thus vindicating both the investigators and the US system of research oversight.
