Regardless, most viewed themselves if not exactly as test subjects (which they certainly were) but as Polio Pioneers, as they and their parents were encouraged to. The polio vaccine field trials ofsponsored by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (March of Dimes), are among the largest and most publicised clinical trials ever undertaken.

Across the United States, schoolchildren were injected with vaccine or placebo, and more than a million others participated as “observed” controls. THE LARGEST and most expensive medical experiment in history was carried out in Well over a million young children participated, and the immediate direct costs were over 5 million dollars.

The experiment was carried out to assess the effectiveness, if any, of the Salk vaccine as a protection against paralysis or death from poliomyelitis. The study was elaborate in many respects, most.
