Analysis And Application Medical Experimentation: Another Tuskegee Study Or Beneficial Research
Recent research has discovered that while HIV infection is relatively high in prison, the majority of those infected arrive at the prison with the disease.
With a five times higher infection rate within prisons when compared with the general population and similarly high rates with Hepatitis C, many suggest allowing for controlled experimentation on inmates to test drugs to combat these two infections. Do you agree with Dr. Albert M. Kligman that prisoners should be again involved in medical trials?
Develop a position paper addressing both sides of the issue. Provide a historical overview of the significant benefits and detriments involving medical testing of prisoners. Include examples to support your position.
