Comments

The story of Nuremberg code in human experiments was evolved by a 70-year old historical link, aiming to provide an alert message for scientists in case of non-provisional disaster caused by immoral human experiment. It played a safeguard role standing on the front line [1].

We really can see something what authors feared in this article. We fully agree with the authors about the general concepts, but we feel something is missing on current problems: the illegal abuse of medical materials and the underground human experiments. What we should do is to enrich its new implications of Nuremberg code and then put it embedded in human brain.
