Public Citizen and the American Medical Student Association call on the Office for Human Research Protections to immediately suspend the iCOMPARE trial and to launch an investigation of the research. The trial — an experiment involving internal medicine residents and their patients without their consent — is highly unethical and fails to comply with federal regulations for the protection of human subjects involved in research.
