Abstract

Interim Rule 23(d) of the Food and Drug Administration, permitting the military to seek the waiving of informed consent requirements before using investigational procedures during certain military operations, brings to mind the central tenet of the Nuremberg Code, that voluntary consent of the competent subject is key, and is therefore a dangerous precedent. Granting the military such exceptions does damage to human rights.
