Editorial Reluctance to Address the Issue

Conflict of Interest: None Declared
Thank you for publishing my letter regarding the possible inability of Chinese citizens to decline participation in clinical trials. However, by having the authors of the paper respond to my letter, the Editors of the Annals have missed the opportunity to explain to their readers how they ensure that coercive methods are not used to recruit participants to clinical trials in countries with authoritarian regimes. I would really like a response from the Editors, not from the authors, who would also be bound by the restrictions placed on them by their political oppressors.
