To the Editor: The recent article by Scott and colleagues1 described a retrospective analysis by postal questionnaire of the attitudes of family members to participation (about a year earlier) in a face-to-face interview about their child's diagnosis of Ewing's sarcoma. This was accompanied by an editorial exposing the complexities of research participation, including the potential risks of interviews as well as the role of altruism.2
