AbstractThis ten-point statement arose from the Nuremberg Military Tribunal’s decision in the case, United States v. Karl Brandt et al., which took place in Germany, and were presided over by judges from the four Allied powers. It states that human experimentation is only justifiable if its results benefit society, and if it is carried out in accord with basic principles that “satisfy moral, ethical, and legal concepts.”
