This book examines the medical human research industry from the point of view of the researched. Written by human test research subjects (also known as 'guinea pigs'), the book includes stories about flipping out on Prozac, sleep deprivation and gene therapy. Besides rating test clinics and providing practical advice to fellow human guinea pigs, Helms investigates the history of human test research and provides some illuminating commentary on the goals and motives behind the biomedical enterprise.
