Reichsrundschreiben 1931: Pre-Nuremberg German Regulations Concerning New Therapy and Human Experimentation
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1983 May; 8(2): 99-111.
Sass translates and comments on the Richtlinien, the pre-Nuremberg regulations concerning human experimentation which were binding law in Germany from 1931 through the end of the Third Reich in 1945. Stricter in some respects than the Nuremberg Code and subsequent regulations, these laws were intended to foster a morally aware system of public health care while encouraging research. Responsibility for maintaining professional and ethical standards within a medical institution was assigned more to the chief physician than to the individual physician or researcher, and no mention was made of advisory boards or committees. The article concludes with a re-publication in German of the original regulations. (KIE abstract)
