U.S. News and World Report reports "how cancer patients often submit to risky medical trials - and sometimes pay with their lives... Some researchers neglected to report adverse reactions to experimental drugs -- including deaths. Others coerced cancer-ridden patients into waiving their legal rights. Still others placed patients into trials that were medically inappropriate, possibly reducing their chances for survival.... No government agency tracks (all) patients who enroll in medical trials."
