Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Nussbaum's study of AIDS research has led him to criticize the National Institutes of Health, the FDA, AZT developer Burroughs Wellcome and others. "A hard-hitting, shocking look at profit-oriented AIDS research, this brisk journalistic account also tours a medical underground in which grass-roots organizations offer various unapproved drugs to people with AIDS," said PW.

From Library Journal

Journalist Nussbaum's readable, gossipy book raises some important and hotly debated issues, but it also reduces thorny problems in medical research and ethics to a simplistic theory of conspiracy among medical researchers, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies to keep promising AIDS drugs off the market and away from desperate patients. His narrative barely acknowledges the enormous difficulty of developing effective antivirals, the self-criticisms by government agencies and researchers charged with handling AIDS, or the ethical dilemmas encountered in distributing unapproved drugs. He also seems unaware or dismissive of the role that human frailty plays in the politics of science and business. Not on a par with such titles as Randy Shilts's And the Band Played On ( LJ 11/15/87), this is an optional purchase.
