If my life were saved due to experimental procedures, I don't think I would fine myself complaining.  BD

YOU COULD be severely injured, perhaps from a nasty fall or a car accident. Maybe it's a family member or friend. The person is whisked away to the hospital for emergency medical treatment. Once there, hospital personnel begin to administer aid. Sounds pretty routine? Sure, unless you are one of the more than 20,000 patients unknowingly involved in medical research.

The federal government is spearheading the most ambitious set of studies ever mounted to test various degrees of medical research at a cost of $50 million over five years at 11 sites in the United States and Canada.

The catch? These medical experiments are done without a patient's permission.
