Description

The series examined pharmaceutical research on humans. If found that more than half the researchers inspected by the Food and Drug Administration since 1977 were cited by inspectors for failing to clearly disclose the experimental nature of their work. And, decades after notorious syphilis experiments on blacks at Tuskegee, Ala., and radiation studies on civilians during the Cold War, the government is still in the business of conducting and paying for medical tests on unwary Americans. The series also revealed that medical ethics committees, considered the front line in protecting patients, are swamped by swelling number of studies. Some spend about two minutes reviewing a proposed experiment. The reporters discovered the existence of the FDA's "blacklist" of 82 scientists banned from experimenting with "investigational new drugs" on people. (December 15 - 18, 1996)
