Q)Can i ask you why you think that no ethical consideration on the study was considered?
A)Conflict of interest in the NZ govt that keeps funding millions to LCT.
And the NZ Govt ethics committee (HDEC) approves all the LCT ‘s research in NZ.
Things like ‘no separation’ comes to mind (LCT Chief medical officer Dr Paul Tan moonlights between LCT and the NZ govt).
2) IN NZ The AWHC found MAJOR FLAWS IN SOPs for ETHICS COMMITTEES
At the end of December 2011 the AWHC received a copy of the draft Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for ethics committees.
followed by the “Draft standard operating procedures (SOPs) for health and disability ethics committees (HDECs).” The changes which are due to be
implemented by the middle of the year will effectively spell the end of the purpose, role and function of ethics committees.
Its For Growing the clinical trial industry.
The Health Committee was clearly alarmed that New Zealand was missing out on the l$ucrative market for clinical trials. Chapter 3 of their report
described the steps that need to be taken for New Zealand to create an effective clinical trials environment. The report stated “New Zealand needs
to be attractive to overseas sponsors of multinational research projects. An environment conducive to pharmaceutical companies funding these trials in
New Zealand is required if the clinical trial industry is to grow.”
The Committee was told that one of the important factors for a productive clinical trial environment for pharmaceuticals was “the efficiency with
which the New Zealand health system can interface with the pharmaceutical companies$ to deliver an efficient clinical trial outcome.” (1)
One of the things obviously standing in the way is New Zealand’s ethics committees.”
3)This has been dealt with now the NZ govt’s online ethics committee the HDEC.
Its so corrupt its unbelievable to research it. The NZ govt wants big pharma’s money and LCT want to market patented pig cells the NZ govt have
invested so much in LCT.
Yes I hear you say IN THE USA for every in-vivo study conducted, internal and national ethics comittees are consulted and extremely strict protocols
are submitted before carrying out any type of scientific procedure .
But its not being done like that in NZ and this is an entirely new procedure.No ethical consideration.
I don’t listen to PETA.This is not about PETA its about new studies being done exempt from ethics and extremely strict protocols.
Torture and death inflicting on animals in the name of saving lives tell me what good has come of it ? Don’t tell me about the DRUG cures( as there
are not any) as there is just BIG PHARMA growing from this cruelty and inhumanity. All the tests had to work on humans testing on humans was what
showed something worked on humans.
Everyr "medical advance" of the last century was from an idea of a human being and was only fruitful when it worked on human beings, from the
experimentation on people,even some people do not respond the same to the same treatment sometimes drugs and radiation do not work in individuals.
Just look at and the growing health problems it shows exactly how all the torture and animal killing has improved our health.We are sicker than even
physically and mentally. Why even try to toot the medical industrial complex's horn?
There is no ethical conditions for animals used in scientific in-vivo research.That is an oxymoron.
Like a “humanitarian bombing”. Its torture harm and death.
