This chapter discusses changes in the conduct of medical research in the U.S. following the Office for Protection from Research Risks' (OPRR) suspension of some four hundred human trials supported by the National Institute of Health at the Veterans Administration (VA) health-care complex in Los Angeles, California, in March 1999. After the VA incident, the OPRR also issued ominous warnings about further punitive steps and required careful documentation of compliance with institutional review board (IRB) regulations for medical research. The OPRR move has affected university research.
