Italian term or phrase:si asterrano
I componenti del Comitato Etico dichiarano che si asterranno dal pronunciarsi su quelle sperimentazioni per
le quali possa sussistere un conflitto di interesse di tipo diretto o indiretto. --- What does si asterrano mean here? They don't want to hand down a decision about these studies because there could be a direct or indirect conflict of interest? I am unfamiliar with this term. Thanks for your help!
