Pfizer to Pay £50 Million After Deaths of Nigerian Children in Drug Trial Experiment


Indep endent.co.uk

A divorce case was all that passed for excitement at Richard P Altschuler's "kinda small" lawyer's office in West Haven, Connecticut, when the phone rang nine years ago. On the other end of the line, a world away in the heat of Nigeria, was Etigwe Uwo, a young lawyer with "an incredible story about Pfizer". The Lagos attorney was going to take on the largest pharmaceutical company in the world in an unprecedented class action pitting African parents against an American corporate giant. And he needed help.

Mr Etigwe had chosen Mr Altschuler because, back in 1979, the Connecticut lawyer had successfully defended a friend of the Nigerian. The unlikely pair were about to embark on a marathon journey into the world of "big pharma". Nine years on and their efforts have finally been rewarded with a reported $75m (£50m) settlement, the terms of which are likely to be released this week.

[...] In 1996, the company needed a human trial for what it hoped would be a pharmaceutical "blockbuster", a broad spectrum antibiotic that could be taken in tablet form. The US-based company sent a team of its doctors into the Nigerian slum city of Kano in the midst of an appaling meningitis epidemic to perform what it calls a "humanitarian mission". However the accusers claim it was an unlicensed medical trial on critically-ill children.

Pfizer is responsible for killing more than Nigerian children. And they're not going to stop killing people, until we take out the trash: them. They belong in prison for their crimes against humanity.

Losing money doesn't hurt those killers working with Pfizer & other government-agencies. Accepting full responsibility & being punished by serving a prison-sentence would hurt them though.

Do not support the rogue-governments of the world or the serial-killers, they've hired & programmed.

If Pfizer & other government-controlled agencies didn't make drugs like Viagra, they'd be out of business & looking for other opportunities in the military industrial complex. I doubt they've tested their own drugs on themselves or their families, on a daily basis.

They want us to consume their garbage. We'd be better off spitting that garbage in their faces, than swallowing it. They're disgusting beings.

I just get the impression Scientologist from the comments (on this thread and others). Is it just me?

We'll ignore all the facts that drug companies can and actually do some good. Extremely bad practice(s), as in the article should be punished severely but we should not do away with pharmaceuticals altogether.
