Parental approval to enroll their sick children in clinical research was studied. However, the motivation of parents to enroll healthy children and/or babies was not yet studied. The importance of clinical research among the healthy population is of extreme value. The aim of this study is to assess the motivation, medical trust and other factors influencing parents' decision to enroll their healthy baby in a clinical study.
