The objective of this thesis is to propose a new normative model of moral justification and to include it in the set of already existing normative models, which deliberate on whether or not there is an obligation of auxiliary attention of the researcher towards the individual participant of biomedical research. The term "ancillary care" refers to the health care that clinical research participants need, but that is not related to the safety or scientific validity of the research, nor is it related to the management ("redress") of harm caused to participants. This model that I propose, and which I will call the "Special Relationship Model," focuses on certain special relationships of research participants, such as dependent family members and/or sexual partners, directly or indirectly linked to clinical research.
