"It seems to me like if you were considering signing up for one of these things, you would at least want to know the data that's out there about [safety]," said Carl Elliott, a bioethics professor at the University of Minnesota who has writtenextensively on the ethics of human-subject research. "[But] since it's not on Clinicaltrials.gov, you can't."

In 2001, Elliott co-authored an editorial titled "Justice for the Professional Guinea Pig," arguing for an overhaul of the way human subjects are treated. "Studies on healthy subjects-unlike research on sick patients-are best characterized as a kind of labor relations," he wrote. Among other things, he argued that participants should be able to negotiate payment based on the discomfort they experience during a study.
"Under the basic ethics guidelines ... research subjects are treated as if they are altruistic volunteers," he told me.
"It's work, but it offers none of the protections of work," Elliott said.
For Elliott, money is less of a concern than safety.
And the IRB process, Elliott said, has its own problems. Many IRBs are for-profit businesses hired by CROs and drug companies, which means "you're essentially paying an oversight body to approve your study. The incentives to make it easy on the research sponsors are pretty dramatic," he said. University IRBs, which can involve one colleague reviewing another's study, aren't foolproof either.
"Neither of those makes sense," he said.
