Who participates in clinical trials?
It has been more than 70 years since the US Public Health Service started documenting the effects of syphilis on 399 human test subjects — all of them black, all of them poor and most of them illiterate.

Since then we have come a long way in terms of monitoring of clinical trials and observing ethical guidelines for experiments on human subjects.
