Medical research without consent?

Just read a quick blurb about medical research being conducted without patient consent. It's a little light on details, such as where you can get an one of the bracelets that opt you out of the study.

Now, I'm all for medical research. But by making this an opt-out system rather than opt-in, where's the informed consent that is typical required? Isn't research without informed consent unethical?
