AbstractThis book looks at the history of biomedical research with human subjects from 1890 to 1940. It includes less-well known case studies such as the yellow fever experiments Udo Wile's "dental drill" experiments on insane patients, and Hideyo Noguchi's syphilis experiments. The author follows the history of the antivivisectionist movement, that focused on the humane treatment of animals, and examines how this movement influenced the treatment of human research subjects.
