Therapeutic misconception arises wherever human subjects misunderstand the primary purpose of a clinical trial as therapeutic. The phenomenon was first described in an article by Paul S. Appelbaum. APPELBAUM, P.S., ROTH, L.H., LIDZ, C.W., BENSON, P., and WINSLADE, W. (1987). False hopes and best data: Consent to research and the therapeutic misconception. Hastings Cent. Rep. 17, 20–24.
