Human experimentation is important to the development of life science. There are so many problems brought about by human experimentation, which should be paid more attention to by law in order to protect the right of the subject. International as well as domestic laws are enacted in order to beat the illegitimate human experiment, while criminal countermeasures should be taken to redeem the failure of common legal measures, especially for China.
