The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says researchers didn’t tell parents that their premature newborns would be at risk in a study involving the effects of oxygen levels, the Miami Herald reports. HHS says if parents knew the actual risks involved, they most likely wouldn’t have participated. The University of Miami was one of 23 universities that participated in the study.
