The self-experimental procedures performed by doctors on their own, before (or instead of) extending the investigation to their patients is a very well known and ethical practice for the progress of medical diagnosis and therapies. In the Doctor-Care-Yourself Network (born in University of Modena medical school, Italy), this issue is formally part of the duties of participants. Our paper describes a self-experiment on intravenous perfusion of biliary salts in healthy doctors to verify the safety of different dosages, before trying them on the patients. The inventor of the parenteral treatment preliminary submitted himself only at first, to verify the feasibility and possible untoward effect of the treatment. Subsequently, after this first positive selfexperience, other three colleagues spontaneously joined the same protocol, which was confirmed to be absolutely safe and optimally tolerated.
