Big Pharma Clinical Drug Trials Killing Thousands in India

•, by Elizabeth Renter

Recently, the Supreme Court in India took a stand, calling on the government to justify its approval of the many clinical trials in that country. This came as a result of several organizations campaigning for tighter regulations and oversight on the trials. “Clinical trials of NCEs are being conducted without following proper protocol, and companies are taking advantage of poor people,” explained Amulya Nidhi of the Health right Forum.
