NEW REVIEW -- SPEID / Clinical Trials: What Patients and Volunteers Need toKnow.  Oxford University Press, Inc., 2010.

Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP(Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)

As it does not follow the usual pattern of explaining human volunteer regulations, this is a refreshing and tremendously useful book, with stories from a coordinator who has worked within the system and understands the limitations of volunteering for clinical trials. I highly recommend this to every researcher.
