Tribal girls becoming 'guinea pigs' in Gates Foundation study: report

Tribal girls becoming 'guinea pigs' in Gates Foundation study: report

Drug trial
Between 2007 and 2010, nearly 1,730 people died in India while, or after, participating in drug trials of western firms, report Independent. (Thinkstock)

Pharmaceutical companies in the West have seized on developing countries like India over the past five years as a testing ground for drugs, where the research costs for lucrative products to be sold in the Western nations are very low.
According to the 'Independent', after the relaxation of restrictions on drug trials in 2005, this business has swollen to such a point in India today that over 150,000 people are involved in at least 1,600 clinical trials, which are conducted on behalf of British, American and European firms including AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Merck.
Between 2007 and 2010, nearly 1,730 people died in India while, or after, participating in such trials, which according to the paper, may be worth as much as £189 million.
Various incidents of such drug trials were carried out in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, as well as in Delhi, the paper said.
The trials involved the recruitment of hundreds of tribal girls without parental consent for an immunisation study that was sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It involved the use of survivors of the poisonous gas disaster in Bhopal as "guinea pigs" in at least 11 trials by drug companies without proper informed consent.
Also, a police investigation in Indore found that dozens of private trials by doctors at a government hospital in the city 'violated the ethical guidelines'. The doctors who conducted the trials decided that not one of 81 cases in which a participant suffered an adverse effect was linked to the treatment.
Campaigners have pointed out that India is a particularly attractive location for researchers not simply because of the lax regulations, but also because of the size and
 genetic diversity of the 1.2 billion population.
Added to this, almost all doctors speak some English. The infrastructure for such trials, often in the form of government hospitals, is widely available.
According to the paper, India is just one of many developing countries used by leading Western pharmaceutical companies that spent 40 billion pounds in 2010 on research and developmenT

I carry a torch in one hand
And a bucket of water in the other:
With these things I am going to set fire to Heaven
And put out the flames of Hell
So that voyagers to God can rip the veils
And see the real goal........................................By Rabia (Rabi'a Al-'Adawiyya)
