This book discusses the various investigations into Eugene Saenger's program. It evaluates the complex and mutually supportive relationship between clinical ethics and medical research practices during the cold war, and the symbiotic relationship between military medicine and cancer therapy using total-body irradiation (TBI). It also looks at the work of Bernard Fisher, James Shannon, and Donnal Thomas. The first part of this book offers a framework for postwar medical research practices, concentrating on clinical trials, ethical regulation, and TBI studies. The second part addresses the events in Cincinnati between the late 1950s, when Saenger launched his project, and the early 1970s, when his program was exposed to intense public scrutiny and, ultimately, closed down (in 1972). Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is given.
