Who goes first?

A recent example of self-experimentation is the famous trial where Dr. Barry Marshall swallowed a tube full with Helicobacter pylori which led him to develop gastritis. Lawrence K. Altman, M.D. has written the story of self-experimentation in medicine covering the many facets of these heroic experiments. Published already in 1987, I discovered this book only now. Highly recommended, yea, yea.
