The progress of medical science can indeed save a life, but sometimes experiment conducted by scientists violate existing ethics. This is her seventh worst medical experiments involving human subjects.
Friday (17/12/2010) there are 7 worst in the history of medical experimentation involving humans as subjects, namely:
1. Tuskegee Study
The study lasted for 40 years. According to the Center for disease control and prevention of the U.S., the health department launched a research on the health effects of untreated syphilis. Unfortunately this is not known to the participants, whether they received treatment or not syphilis.
Researchers track the progression of the disease in 399 black men in Alabama, including 201 healthy men. Scientists reveal the participants that diriya being treated as a ‘bad blood’. These participants had never received adequate treatment, even until 1947 when penicillin became the choice of drugs for treating syphilis.
2. Studies of syphilis in Guatemala
Between the years 1946-1948, the U.S. government and the Guatemalan conduct a joint study by deliberately infect syphilis in prisoners in Guatemala and the patient in a mental hospital. This study aims to test the chemicals that can prevent the spread of disease.
Researchers trying to infect the subject by way of him having sex with a prostitute who had been infected. Although syphilis was given the drug penicillin, but found no further treatment for these patients.
3. Surgical experiments on slaves
People of modern gynecology, J Marion Sims much gain fame by performing experimental surgery on slave women. Sims experimented surgery without anesthesia (partial anesthesia has not been found), but he revealed that it was not painful enough. Whereas in the Journal of Medical Ethics written in 1993 to experiment with humans is not acceptable.
4. Burke and Hale’s murder
Until the 1830s the execution murders are relatively rare, so many experts anatomy of the human body to take or buy from the robbers. Until finally William Hale and his friend William Burke opened the entrepreneurial lodging and sell the body to be sold on the anatomist. As a result of these crimes Burke later hanged for his crimes.
5. The Monster Study
In 1939 researchers wanted to prove the theory that stuttering behavior is caused by the anxiety of a child to speak. The researcher sat with the children orphans and said that these children show signs of stuttering and should not speak unless sure I can speak properly. This experiment makes the child that was normal to be anxious and became silent.
6. Japan’s Unit 731
Throughout the 1930s until the 1940s, the Japanese imperial army to do medical tests and biological warfare against the civilian population and most of China. The death toll from this brutal experimental unknown, but there may be 200,000 people.
The study involved infected wells cholera, typhus, lice and the prisoners lined up in cold weather to determine the best treatment for frostbite. Other atrocities were blindfolded prisoners with poison gas, and then inserted into the room until his eyes out and operate while still alive and conscious.
7. Nazi medical experiments
Perhaps the notorious experiments of all time is carried out by Josef Mengele, an SS doctor at Auschwitz, and he collects the eyes of the victims of his patients. These experiments using prisoners to test the treatment of infectious diseases and chemical warfare. While others are forced into low-pressure frozen in a room as a trial flight.
Meanwhile, an ad apula experiment with how to tie a woman’s breasts with rope so that researchers can see how long a baby can survive with the hunger. Until finally the baby injected with lethal morphine to end his suffering. It is known that Mengele died in Brazil in 1979 of a stroke.
