   schema:description "Lederer examines the saturation in which human experimentation occurred as well as the social arrangements made between experimenters and their subjects. She offers detailed accounts of experiments - benign and otherwise - conducted on both healthy and unhealthy men, women, and children. These accounts then form the background for a discussion of such issues as patient consent, self-experimentation, the authority of orthodox medicine, and the ethical problems raised by the use of human subjects in biomedical research. Examining the development of medical research ethics in the pre-World War II period, Subjected to Science puts contemporary issues in badly needed perspective. The book provides valuable historical information for understanding current controversies, from debates about the use of animals in medical research to new concerns about informed consent in human research."@en ;
