Abstract:     
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Revitalization Act of 1993 (Pub. L. 103-43, June 10, 1993). One key provision of the law directed the NIH to establish guidelines for the inclusion of "women and members of minority groups" in clinical research. The NIH gudelines mandated by the Act were followed by similar guidelines developed b the US Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The issuance fo these guidelines to promote more inclusive research was clearly justified and necessitatted by a history of indifference to or explicit exclusion of women and minorities in many clinical research studies. Thus, there was an ethical, political, and scientiffie imperative for greater inclusion of women and minorities in clinical trials.
