The University of Pennsylania and the Children's National Medical Center are set to pay the government $1 million over fraud charges stemming from a teenager's death during a gene-therapy experiment. It is alleged that the 18 year old man was not made fully aware of the risks he faced with the experimental gene therapy to treat his genetic disorder. Prosecutors also claim that the researchers should have known that the therapy carried unacceptable side effects.
