The Nuremberg Code

Some ancient history needs to be recalled on a regular basis.
It is hoped that regular recall may provide a rationale for not
repeating our mistakes as human beings.

Yes. I do feel this code is important for people with Hidradenitis Suppurativa.

The Nuremberg Code
( as quoted within 1998 Hornblum US Acres of Skin Medical Science & Human Experiment Holmsburg Prison Source: Personal HS Research Database)

1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely
essential. This means that the person involved should have legal
capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to
exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any
element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other
ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have
sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the
subject matter involved as to enable him to make an
understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element
requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision
by the experimental subject there should be made known to
him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the
method and means by which it is to be conducted; all
inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the
effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from
his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility
for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each
individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment.
It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be
delegated to another with impunity.

2. The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for
the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means
of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.

3. The experiment should be so designed and based on the results
of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural
history of the disease or other problem under study that the
anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.

4. The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all
unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.

5. No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori
reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except,
perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians
also serve as subjects.

6. The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that
determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to
be solved by the experiment.

7. Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities
provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote
possibilities of injury, disability, or death.

8. The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically
qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should
be required through all stages of the experiment of those who
conduct or engage in the experiment.

9. During the course of the experiment the human subject should
be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached
the physical or mental state where continuation of the
experiment seems to him to be impossible.

10. During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must
be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has
probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith,
superior skill, and careful judgement required of him, that a
continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury,
disability, or death to the experimental subject.

A victim of a Nazi medical experiment is immersed in icy water at the Dachau concentration camp. SS doctor Sigmund Rascher oversees the experiment. Germany, 1942.
Social commentary:
The medical results from this particular experiment were used after World War II by global society, and by global Navies in particular, in order to discover the human effects, and survivability of cold water immersion.

That HS doctor quote you use on the above graphic 'will not hide'
is absolutely priceless, well done!
