REASONS FOR OPPOSITION:

Researchers would not be required to first try approved treatments, if any exist, before entering the patient into a medical experiment that may be "risky."

Researchers would not be required to consult with an independent medical expert, a non-researcher who would consider the patient's best medical interests as paramount.

Researchers would not be required to disclose their own professional and financial interests deriving from the experiment.

Researchers would not be required to fully disclose to the patient's family what happened to other patients who had already participated in the experiment.
