Just watched this report on the news. Apparently each of the men were paid $5000 (around 2000 quid?) to be injected with this prototype anti-inflammatory drug.



Watched one of the victim's distressed Australian (probably why it made the news here) girlfriend describe the incident, after being told he was critical and could die. Was pretty hard-hitting.



Should the victim have been prepared for it, or should the pharmaceutical company have taken measures to ensure it didn't get this bad (does that defeat the purpose of clinical trials?)



What say you?

See, the fact that this happened doesn't mean the system is broken. It means it's not perfect. And it will never be. You can't go rearranging the way everything is done every time a freak accident occurs.

This is tragic, but it's not a reason to halt all medical research.



Exacto, if anything I suppose it shows the system works, but an unfortunate part of the system is the initial "risk" of testing on humans...

Ah well, live on clinical trials!! (other wise I'm out of a job ubblol )
