Example text

Over the past 10 years our society has learned bitter lessons about medical research. After the dramas of thalidomide, the intrauterine device and DES, no one could argue that any measures to protect the physical or mental well-being of study subjects are appropriate and indeed essential. However, in our genuine concern to ensure that this 43 protection is above reproach, especially above litigation based reproach, we have adopted severe and in some cases counterproductive research methodologies that may be helping to spread the AIDS virus rather ·than stopping it.

That position may not take seriously enough a number of other moral principles and rules that we have to consider in developing public policies to deal with the threat of AIDS.
