  • U.S. HHS Seeking comments: "Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects". Deadline 6 Jan. 2016.

    An opportunity to engage regulatory agencies over the concerns some of us have about circumcision-related "research" and human subject protections. There is a blue 'Comment Now' button in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and you can upload documents if 5000 characters is insufficient space:

      Unfortunately, according to the second paragraph ... the deadline for submitting responses was 7 December 2015

      "To be assured consideration, comments must be received at one of the addresses provided below, no later than 5 p.m. on December 7, 2015."

        The deadline for comments was subsequently extended 30 days to 6 January 2016:

        This is a very broad request for comments, and some issues readers might like to address include circumcision device trials ( eg http://circwatch.org/the-good-samari...on-experiment/ ); and the issues surrounding biobanking of foreskin specimens collected from men and boys both in the U.S., and by U.S. researchers abroad (eg HIV + and - men circumcised in Africa).
