University College London has updated its mechanisms for safeguarding research participants and ensuring the quality and ethical standards of its research. In doing so it has taken account of lessons learnt from the case of Andrew Wakefield, whose research into a possible link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism led to him being struck off the UK medical register. But it says it will not investigate the Wakefield case further, despite calls from the BMJ to do so.
