This Revolting Practice Targets Poor Unsuspecting People First - And You Next

Posted By Dr. Mercola | February 19 2012

Story at-a-glance
  • Pfizer and Merck have also been busted for unethical conduct in drug- and vaccine trials that led to the death of unwitting participants
  • A lack of respect for human life seems to permeate modern medical trials. A case in point is the approval of a pediatric anthrax vaccine trial by the National Biodefense Science Board, despite the fact that the anthrax vaccine has a demonstrated serious adverse effect profile of one to two percent, and 11 percent of all reported adverse events are serious
  •  The Argentinean Federation of Health Professionals has accused GlaxoSmithKline of misleading participants and pressuring poor families into joining their Synflorix pediatric pneumonia vaccine trial, in which 14 children have died
  • GlaxoSmithKline denies the charges and will appeal the nearly $240,000 fine imposed on the company and two doctors
