Public Citizen: Researchers failed to obtain informed consent from patients involved in kidney transplant experiment

From the press release: 

“University of Californian - San Francisco's IRB disturbingly concluded that this study solely involved deceased kidney donors, failing to recognize that the living kidney recipients were human subjects. This led to serious violations of the rights of these patients who were the unknowing guinea pigs in this experiment,” said Dr. Michael Carome, director of Public Citizen’s Health Research Group.
