People with mental impairments should not be regarded as "guinea pigs" by the pharmaceutical industry, Schmidt told the daily "Berliner Zeitung" on Thursday. Amendments to Germany's Medicines Act planned by Health Minister Herrmann Gröhe would allow clinical testing if prior to the onset of dementia the person had signed a consent form. Schmidt, a center-left Social Democrat and a deputy federal parliamentary speaker, said the procedure amounted to a "fig leaf." She said informed consent assumed that the patient could be briefed about the test's exact purpose, content and risks - a task that's often not possible for patients with dementia. Clinical testing is a highly sensitive topic in Germany because of murderous experiments conducted during Hitler's 12-year Nazi regime. In March, when the federal government adopted the draft law, Grohe, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), said the procedural inclusion of regional Ethics Commissions would ensure … [Read more...] about Dementia medical test rules slammed in Germany
