医学实验的严重伤害

媒体、立法者以及其他组织经常对临床研究违反人权以及违背伦理提出关切。这样的事例层出不穷。在巴西的一项研究中,让100只可能携带霍乱的蚊子叮咬人体实验对象。一名法国医生在没有高危手术通常所需要的研究情况下进行了换脸手术。一名18岁的研究对象在一个基因治疗试验中死去,在他死后发现了大量临床试验漏洞。

仅仅在几个月前,在伦敦的一项临床试验中,首次服用一种药物导致六名人体实验对象身患重病。两名志愿者死亡。这些志愿者得到了几千美元来参与这一实验。

普通公众知道临床研究试验,但是并不知道研究中所采用的研究对象数量要远远大于临床试验。尽管某些与研究有关的死亡事例被大众传媒所报道,研究中的实际死亡数量要更高。由于缺乏有效的报告,甚至连监管当局和专家们都并不知真实的死亡数字和负面事件。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
