MINI CASE STUDY 1 Before a newly discovered drug is approved for sale, the US. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)require that it be tested on healthy humans to determine whether it has dangerous side effects.Unfortunately, most healthy people will not take an untested substance that is not intended to cure themof anything and that may have crippling or deadly effects. Test subjects can die; suffer paralysis, organdamage, and other chronically debilitating injuries. Eli Lilly, a large pharmaceutical company, however,discovered a group of “volunteers” willing to take untested drugs for only $85 a day plus free room andboard: homeless alcoholic desperate for money recruited in soup kitchens, shelters, and jails. Since testsrun for months, the men can make as much as $4,500-a hefty sum to someone surviving on handouts.The tests provide enormous beneﬁts for society and many tests might not be performed at all butfor the pool for homeless alcoholics. Moreover, providing the men with a warm bed, food, and goodmedical care before sending them out drug- and alcohol-free and with money in their pockets seemsbeneficial. The FDA requires that participants in such medical tests must give their “informed consent”and make a “truly voluntary and uncoerced decision.” Some question whether the desperate circumstancesof hungry, homeless, and penniless alcoholics allow them to make a truly voluntary and uncoerceddecision. When asked, one homeless drinker hired to participate in a test said he had no idea what kind of drug was being tested on him even though he had signed an informed-consent form.
