“Ve haf vays of making you guinea pigs!”

Ed Silvermen-PharmaGossip Monday, May 13, 2013

“Leading Western pharmaceutical companies paid millions of pounds to former Communist East Germany to use more that 50,000 patients in state-run hospitals as unwitting guinea pigs for drug tests in which several people died, it was revealed today.”
“Der Spiegel said it gained the information from Stasi secret police files and hitherto unpublished East German health ministry and pharmaceutical institute records. Western pharmaceutical companies are known to have turned to cash-strapped Eastern Bloc countries in their search for human guinea pigs after the 1960s thalidomide scandal which obliged them to carry out rigorous tests on their products before they could be sold.”

“Drugs giants used Communist East Germany for ‘illegal’ trials

Several patients died in tests made possible by massive payoffs to Communist regime”
