Διάβασε στον New Yorker για τους ανθρώπους που συμμετέχουν συστηματικά σε κλινικά τεστ και δοκιμές φαρμάκων αντί αμοιβής.
In some cities, like Philadelphia and Austin, the drug-testing economy has produced a community of semi-professional research subjects, who enroll in one study after another. Some of them do nothing else. For them, “guinea-pigging,” as they call it, has become a job. Many of them say that they know people who have been travelling around the country doing studies for fifteen years or longer. “It’s crazy and it’s sad,” one drug-trial veteran told me. “For me, this is not a life. But it is a life for a lot of these people.”
