After being recruited by the promise of free medical care, men originally were enrolled in the project. The participants were primarily sharecroppers, and many had never before visited a doctor.

Doctors from the U. Public Health Service PHS , which was running the study, informed the participants— men with latent syphilis and a control group of others who were free of the disease—they were being treated for bad blood, a term commonly used in the area at the time to refer to a variety of ailments.

Now called Tuskegee University, the school was founded in with Booker T. Washington at its first teacher. In the mids, a PHS venereal disease investigator in San Francisco named Peter Buxton found out about the Tuskegee study and expressed his concerns to his superiors that it was unethical. In response, PHS officials formed a committee to review the study but ultimately opted to continue it, with the goal of tracking the participants until all had died, autopsies were performed and the project data could be analyzed.

As a result, Buxton leaked the story to a reporter friend, who passed it on to a fellow reporter, Jean Heller of the Associated Press. Heller broke the story in July , prompting public outrage and forcing the study to shut down. By that time, 28 participants had perished from syphilis, more had passed away from related complications, at least 40 spouses had been diagnosed with it and the disease had been passed to 19 children at birth.

The document set forth basic ethical principles for medical research involving human subjects, such as the requirement that a person must give informed consent before participating in an experiment.

As a result of the Tuskegee experiment, many African Americans developed a lingering, deep mistrust of public health officials. The final study participant passed away in Herman Shaw speaks as President Bill Clinton looks on during ceremonies at the White House on May 16, , during which Clinton apologized to the survivors and families of the victims of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. In that study, from to , nearly men and women—prisoners, soldiers, mental patients—were intentionally infected with syphilis hundreds more people were exposed to other sexually transmitted diseases as part of the study without their knowledge or consent.

The purpose of the study was to determine whether penicillin could prevent, not just cure, syphilis infection. Some of those who became infected never received medical treatment.

The results of the study, which took place with the cooperation of Guatemalan government officials, never were published. The American public health researcher in charge of the project, Dr. John Cutler, went on to become a lead researcher in the Tuskegee experiments. She shared her findings with U.

For the most part, doctors and civil servants simply did their jobs. Some merely followed orders, others worked for the glory of science. Heller Jr. Taliaferro Clark was credited with founding it. His initial goal was to follow untreated syphilis in a group of black men for 6 to 9 months, and then follow up with a treatment phase. Among his conclusions was the recommendation that, "If one wished to study the natural history of syphilis in the Negro race uninfluenced by treatment, this county Macon would be an ideal location for such a study.
