Six hospitalized, one of them is brain dead, in a French drug trial


The ministry has suspended the trial. It’s supposed but not publicly known how many other people participated on the trial. The name of the private licensed company who conducted trial was not officially disclosed but from unverified sources it’s believed to be Biotrial. The Paris prosecutor’s office has now launched an investigation. This is a tragic situation but without volunteers, it would be impossible to bring new drugs to market. However, is the responsibility of drug makers to initiate trials when the probability to be safe is almost sure and usually such tests are not performed on the phase one from the three evaluation steps required.
