To the Editor.—
The Dykes-Czapek article supporting the right of physicians to do legitimate, humane, and well-planned research on human beings deserves applause. It was a reasonable and mature statement pointing out some of the problems in this area. I was especially pleased to see The Journal supporting our besieged Boston physicians, who are, after all, doing precisely what they should be doing—searching for more scientific, more efficient ways to combat disease.
