    I work in clinical trials, and contrary to what is so brazenly written in this article, there is absolutely no way in hell this 'experiment' would have passed a Helsinki committee approval, none whatsoever. This comment is so aggregious I recommend a comment from haaretz to this affect. Clinical trials do not commence without extensive animal testing, and an ethical indication that said 'treatment' would be of benefit to mankind, i.e. drugs, not uranium poisoning, the effects of which can be studied very easily, although not necessarily ethically, in animal models.
