Human guinea pigs Explode!?

A VOLUNTEER who escaped the drug test disaster told last night how he saw six healthy young men turn into wailing wrecks within minutes.

Human guinea pig Raste Khan — who did not know he had been given a harmless placebo in the test — said it was like a horror film unfolding before his eyes.

The 23-year-old TV technician added:

The test ward turned into a living hell minutes after we were injected. The men went down like dominoes.

More proof of the evil doctors do!!!

Such a violent reaction in humans should have been apparent in animal trials. Oh but wait, according to the ALF morons, we can simulate on supercomputers all drug trials. So this could have been thousands when this drug was released to the public.

That is plain out wrong.

According to reports the drug had been in testing and development for 9 years and had passed all earlier tests , allbeit not on people.

It seems to have been some sort of reaction that was not apparent in all other testing, including animals.

Although its an unfortunate thing to have have happened, no one could have predicted this would happen but the peole involved new the risks when they entered the trial program.

It just shows that nothing can beat human testing for finding side effects, its an integral part of testing alongside animal testing, I beat the computers never predicted this happening.

Exactly, don't chalk this up to evil or stupid doctors quite yet - it's just that it's something that wasn't supposed to come up. As mentioned, it's not like it was something thought up in a basement, "trialed" in mental simulations, and then given to people - it has been researched for years and years, with both computer, chemical, and animal trials. Nothing yet showed it would have this serious side-effects.

Of course this sucks for the drug because there are OTHER reasons why it could have failed so horribly! As mentioned, there's a strong possibility that the samples created were tainted. If the place where they had it produced lacked proper safety protocols, then it could have been that other chemicals were accidentally mixed in trace amounts to this drug.

Given the potential for these chemicals to react with other organic chemicals both inside the bottle and in the body, and the possibility for catastrophic failure is immensely amplified.

Also, it could be that humans are naturally "sensitized" to this drug - causing a horrible immuno-response that simply shouldn't happen. It's possible this never showed up in animal testings because those creatures also didn't share this sensitization.

And finally, as said, it could be something "unexplainable" - which would mean that it's that 1% of the human body that we don't know reacting with that 1% of the drug that we don't know.

Signing up for testing is dangerous, don't ever think that it's not - especially for phase 1 treatments. However, you do tend to be paid a healthy sum. Often the drugs in phase 1 will do their work either not well enough, just right, or too well - and there will be lots of side effects, like diharrea, foggy vision, diziness, etc. Mostly uncomfortable, but it should help cure you, or it'll help in some way - and at the least you're getting paid for it.
