Presidential Commission Report on Protection of Human Subjects

The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues has released its report on protection of human subjects. This is the follow-up to September's report on the unethical studies done by the US Public Health Service in Guatemala in the 1940s. Major recommendations in the new report seem to be for better data collection and transparency by funding agencies, and for provisions guaranteeing that subjects injured in research are compensated for their research-related medical care.
