Some investigational studies spark controversy for overall ethicalreasons. One of the problems with debates is with animals. Animalsspark a lot of controversy of controversy because they are prone to be themajor subjects and studies and experiments during public health concerns. A lotof people ask if it is right to harm animals to try to improve the lives ofpeople. Animals cannot provide informed consent.
They are not aware of the consequenceswhen becoming the subjects to these experiments. Another reason that the investigational studies raise debateis from lack of data and how accurate the data that is collected really is. In human subjects investigational studies sparkedcontroversy when consent was not given. In the past researchers would use thesesubjects or to experiment different problems and diseases. They never gavewritten consent. Another question is it safe to give humans different _____ andis it safe. Some researchers believe that a placebo should be used to testdiseases before being administered to human subjects. According to “Ethical Considerations” (n.
d.), One ethicalstatement that created a standout amongst the most notorious examples ofdeceptively performed tests was the Tuskegee test. From 1932 to 1972, the U.S.General Health Service looked to contemplate the common movement of untreatedsyphilis in poor, black men who thought they were accepting free socialinsurance from the U.S.
government. (“Ethical Considerations”, n.d.).
In brief “Ethical Considerations” (n.d.) found that out ofthe 600 men engaged with the examination, 399 had beforehand contractedsyphilis before the investigation; they were never told they had syphilis,nonetheless, and were persuaded they were getting free broad therapeutic care. (“EthicalConsiderations”, n.d.). A standout amongst the most deceptive parts of theexamination was that by 1947, penicillin was broadly perceived as the standardtreatment for syphilis.
In any case, the African American men associated withthe examination were not given the treatment that could cure them, and kept onbeing contemplated for a long time after a cure had been found. Before thefinish of the investigation in 1972, just 74 of the guineas pigs were as yetalive (“Ethical Considerations”, n.d.).ReferenceEthicalConsiderations in Research. (n.
