Deadly Side Effects: New Details Emerge in East German Drug Test Scandal

Deadly Side Effects: New Details Emerge in East German Drug Test Scandal

(from spiegel.de source Nicola Kuhrt and Peter Wensierski:)

“Until the fall of the Wall, Western pharmaceutical companies conducted drug trials in East German hospitals. More than 50,000 patients served as subjects, often without their knowledge, and many died. The human experiments haven’t been fully investigated to this day despite fresh evidence of wrongdoing.”

Well, this is a result of “double ethics” of monetary societies. Not all cases may be suspicious but some most likely may be. OTOH terminal patients “should” be given choices to test new medications, because progress requires a practical approach. And I know for “facts of life” this to be a true case, of which I could limitedly talk now, because all the parties involved are dead. One person I used to know well, lived 23 extra years, thanks to shots in the spinal cord of a medication at the times, 50 years ago, “untested” on humans.

If it would have been known back then, one would have probably been dead and the other in prison, that’s why some of the Researchers in the past century used to test some products “on themselves.” Let’s not threw away the baby with the dirty water, “but” “disclosure” is essential, and it requires courage, both sides, and possibly taking the money out of the picture, greed fucks up anything, especially in science, there is no need to hide ghosts away, there is a need of “courage” and responsibility for greater good.
