Pfizer Used 200 Nigerian Infants and Children as Pharmacutical Test Subjects
These pharmaceutical monstrosities use the public in general for testing their products and it's the biggest kept industry secret. Moreover, under the cover of the World Health Organization, UNICEF and other fronts for Eugenics, they use the underdeveloped countries as a large scale lab in which to field test their newest concoctions. Other times they use sterilisation agents, and procedures on unwitting women in campaigns to cull their population. Still other means are used like the pushing of birth control or badgering and offering women incentives not to bear children. This is Eugenics in action and it has always lingered in the background as a weapon in achieving the goals of population control through means of medical, contrived and instigated warfare, chemical/biological agents, starvation through manipulations of resources and environment, advocation of birth control and abortion and state policy of child limitation. In the developed countries it occurs but through much more devious and surreptitious methods that target people through race and class. Let it never be forgotten that the Nazi's field tested what America and Britain developed and propagated. It was three sociopathic nations whom conspired together to achieve their goal of master race theology using the opportunity of Nazi Germany to advance it into overt practice. The UK and US Eugenics operations established the practice of methodically experimenting on, sterilizing and murdering those they deemed unfit. Then they let the Nazis they assisted into power, take it as far as they could, to push the IllumiNazi protocols. Gardasil by Merck is the latest ploy launched to gain proximity to women of child-bearing years, by attempting to bribe legislators and leaders into making their specious vaccine mandatory for all young women over the age of 9 years old.

Also, there is an obfuscation of truth within this article in the second to last sentence:
Quote:But the episode has got in the way of successive public initiatives, including a polio vaccination drive that prompted an 11-month boycott in Kano.
What was omitted was a report from 2004 that stated:

March 11, 2004
LifeSiteNews.com
KADUNA, Nigeria - A UNICEF campaign to vaccinate Nigeria's youth against polio may have been a front for sterilizing the nation. Dr. Haruna Kaita, a pharmaceutical scientist and Dean of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, took samples of the vaccine to labs in India for analysis.
Using WHO-recommended technologies like Gas Chromatography (GC) and Radio-Immuno assay, Dr. Kaita, upon analysis, found evidence of serious contamination. "Some of the things we discovered in the vaccines are harmful, toxic; some have direct effects on the human reproductive system," he said in an interview
with Kaduna's Weekly Trust.


Long story short, Pfuck Pfizer, Merck and all the myriad of other Fourth Reich experimenters who see us all as nothing more than masses of test subjects to fulfil campaigns for Eugenics and profit.

Story:

Drugs Giant Faces Criminal Charges Over Clinical Trial
By Andrew Gumbel in Los Angeles
Published: 31 May 2007

The US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has been slapped with criminal charges in Nigeria over a notorious clinical trial it conducted on children during a meningitis epidemic a decade ago. Patients became unwitting guinea pigs for a new, untested antibiotic and many of them either died or were left with permanent disabilities.

Pfizer and its representatives will be called to account at hearings due to begin next month in the Nigerian state of Kano, where public anger over the clinical trial - and the assurances of any pharmaceutical company - remains so high that the local population won't even trust the Nigerian government to immunise their children against polio.


The episode, which has already led to one unsuccessful suit in the US courts, was the inspiration for John Le Carre's novel The Constant Gardener and is frequently held up as an instance of scientific inquiry gone shockingly awry.

The Nigerian authorities say Pfizer researchers selected 200 children and infants from a crowded epidemic camp in Kano in 1996 and gave about half of them an untested antibiotic called Trovan. The lawsuit alleges that the researchers did not obtain consent from the children's families even though they knew from their own research that Trovan might have life-threatening side effects and was "unfit for human use".

The suit further contends that the researchers gave the other half a comparison drug made by Pfizer's competitor Hoffman-La Roche, but deliberately underdosed them to make their own product look better. Pfizer and its doctors "agreed to do an illegal act," the suit says, "in a manner so rash and negligent as to endanger human life".

Once the trial was over, the suit continues, Pfizer left the area, removed all medical records and "obliterated any evidence" of the trial. A Nigerian government report, which appears to have spurred the criminal charges, previously found that Pfizer never told the children or their parents they were participating in a trial and did not inform them that alternative treatments were available - most obviously chloramphenicol, a relatively cheap antibiotic usually recommended for bacterial meningitis.

The government report found that of the 11 children who died, five were taking Trovan and six were taking low doses of the comparison drug, ceftriaxone. An unknown number suffered deafness, blindness, paralysis and other disabilities.

The Kano authorities have charged Pfizer on eight counts of criminal conspiracy and voluntarily causing grievous harm. They have also filed a civil suit seeking more than $2.7bn (£1.3bn) in damages. Pfizer has responded to the lawsuit by insisting it did nothing wrong. "Pfizer continues to emphasize - in the strongest terms - that the 1996 Trovan clinical study was conducted with the full knowledge of the Nigerian government and in a responsible and ethical way consistent with the company's abiding commitment to patient safety," a company statement said. "Any allegations in these lawsuits to the contrary are simply untrue - they weren't valid when they were first raised years ago and they're not valid today."

Back in 1997, when Pfizer faced a US government audit of its records on Trovan, the company produced a letter from a hospital in Kano saying its study had been approved by the hospital's ethics committee. The company's accusers contend that the letter was fabricated after the fact, using a forged letterhead. The hospital, according to the suit, has no ethics committee.

Nigeria's decision to prosecute Pfizer marks the first known instance of a Third World country going after a pharmaceutical multinational. Until now, the Nigerians have trod very carefully around the issue - commissioning an investigation but then suppressing the results until they were leaked to The Washington Post a few years ago.

But the episode has got in the way of successive public initiatives, including a polio vaccination drive that prompted an 11-month boycott in Kano.

[b]Trovan has never been approved for use on US children. It was cleared for adults in 1997, but its use was restricted two years later following reports of liver damage and death. It is banned throughout Europe.

What does a corporation have to do to lose the right to exist? Seems that absolutely anything is excusable just give em a big fine. That'll solve everything. As long as they don't go bankrupt they can kill and maim people for profit. :barf:

All the drug companies have been in hog heaven for the last 7 years. Bush's daddy sits on the board of the largest pharma company in the world, Eli lilly.

I meant to make mention in the birdflu thread about the huge scam where our government ordered enough doses of tamiflu for the whole country to combat birdflu when the drug has not even been proven to be effective in treating birdflu in humans. Only animal trials have been conducted. That of course doesn't stop the Bush clan from lining some cronies pockets with our government's money. Spending 3.6 billion in vaccines that will probably sit in a warehouse and go bad if the order is ever actually filled at all. The company is racing to increase production 10 fold to make their billions.

Didn't the Bush's also create a special vaccine injury court where if you're injured by a vaccine you go to a special court with strict damage limits and new "rules" like not being able to use precedence? They've certainly earned their handouts from the drug companies.

Shit it's not like this is anything new. US companies tested toxic shit on Blacks for the past 100 years and still got away with it

My missus works in this industry and I've been telling her for years, that's it's about the bottom line, not saving ppl, but to make huge amounts of cash for some fat-cats but she is finally starting to see

Well, you know it's a sad state of affairs when it comes to the evil of corporations! Like the "small pox' vaccinations in Africa which many believe, and with convincing proof that it had started AIDS.

Another GREAT upload by Og! http://69.46.29.93:6969/stats.html?info_ha...13c5cf8f8cd035f

I know alot of Jewish oganizations would have a problem with those "facts", they would like to maintain No.1 status in that Multi-Billion dollar pity party!

But can it all be to achieve the likes of this?

Drug-Resistant Infections Rise Among Urban Poor
http://www.blackamericaweb.com/site.aspx/h...s/infections529

Quote:Date: Monday, May 28, 2007
By: Carla K. Johnson, Associated Press

CHICAGO - (AP) Drug-resistant staph infections have spread to the urban poor, rising almost seven-fold in recent years in some Chicago neighborhoods, a new study finds.

Researchers said the crowded living conditions of public housing and jails may speed up the person-to-person spread of infection.

The superbugs, first seen mainly in hospitals and nursing homes, have turned up recently among athletes, prisoners and people who get illegal tattoos.

Called methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, these staph germs can cause skin infections that in rare cases have led to pneumonia, bloodstream infections and a painful, flesh-destroying condition. MRSA is hard to treat because the bacteria have developed resistance to the penicillin drug family.

From 2000 to 2005, the infection rate seen in patients seeking care at Chicago's main public hospital and its affiliated clinics climbed from 24 cases per 100,000 to 164 cases per 100,000, the study found.


I knew there must be a reason "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World " is one of my favorite comedy movies. How true it is!
One reason the war against racism (and sexism) cannot be won is that once a group is admitted to the club of &being white,& or being allowed, in the case of sexism, to use &the flawed white male model,& it already has learned all too well how to play the role of being superior to those still remaining outside those exclusive clubs. The real problem is that the illicit rewards, both tangible and intangible, in a racist and/or sexist society are so enormous that there is hardly any incentive to do otherwise.&

Ghettoes all about the world are strategic free-range concentration camps, enforced through economic confinement and PSYOPS. Thanks Blackthor for the Drug-resistant staph contribution, and do you by any chance have the link to that thread on Nazi concentration camps in Africa? It sounds most intriguing and I'd definitely like to see that. I remember some Nazi administrators also said they learned about concentrating and confining ethnicities into areas from indian reservations and Jim Crow segregation in the U.S. There's a line of continuity here that just keeps getting refined and expedited through covert means. The contrived establishment and enforcement of borders is confinement and control as well, especially these days.

Yeah, Hei. I put the link up there. Here it is again - http://69.46.29.93:6969/stats.html?info_ha...13c5cf8f8cd035f

I hope your signed up on the tracker? It's a three part series and is very good! I know it eats up disk space.

And I found something interesting on the subject also!

Out of court settlement in the case that inspired 'The Constant Gardener'

A still from The Constant Gardener, starring Rachel Weisz and based on the book by John le Carre, which was reportedly inspired by the Pfizer case

enlarge
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.

If it sounds like the script of a Hollywood blockbuster that's because it was this story that prompted John Le Carre to write The Constant Gardener, according to Mr Altschuler.

In real life it was to Nigeria, not Kenya, that Pfizer turned. 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.

A team of Pfizer doctors reached the Nigerian camp just as the outbreak, which killed at least 11,000 people, was peaking. They set themselves up within metres of a medical station run by the aid group Médecins Sans Frontières, which was dispensing proven treatments to ease the epidemic.

From the crowd that had gathered at the Kano Infectious Diseases Hospital, 200 sick children were picked. Half were given doses of the experimental Pfizer drug called Trovan and the others were treated with a proven antibiotic from a rival company.

Eleven of the children died and many more, it is alleged, later suffered serious side-effects ranging from organ failure to brain damage. But with meningitis, cholera and measles still raging and crowds still queueing at the fence of the camp, the Pfizer team packed up after two weeks and left.

That would probably have been an end to the story if it weren't for Pfizer employee, Juan Walterspiel. About 18 months after the medical trial he wrote a letter to the then chief executive of the company, William Steere, saying that the trial had "violated ethical rules". Mr Walterspiel was fired a day later for reasons "unrelated" to the letter, insists Pfizer.

The company claims only five children died after taking Trovan and six died after receiving injections of the certified drug Rocephin. The pharmaceutical giant says it was the meningitis that harmed the children and not their drug trial. But did the parents know that they were offering their children up for an experimental medical trial?

"No," Nigerian parent Malam Musa Zango said. He claims his son Sumaila, who was then 12 years old, was left deaf and mute after taking part in the trial. But Pfizer has denied this and says consent had been given by the Nigerian state and the families of those treated. It produced a letter of permission from a Kano ethics committee. The letter turned out to have been backdated and the committee set up a year after the original medical trial.

At stake at one point last year was more than $8bn in punitive damages being sought in a string of cases, as well as potential jail terms in Nigeria for several Pfizer staff. "There has been a complex web of cases with proceedings in Connecticut, New York, Lagos, Abuja and Kano," Mr Etigwe said. "The strategy of big companies when they are dealing with smaller opponents is to stretch the process, to overwhelm us until we are ready to accept whatever they want to offer." Trovan never became the blockbuster that Pfizer had hoped for and it is no longer in production. The EU has banned the drug and it has been withdrawn from sale in the US.

It appears that Pfizer has finally ended the public relations nightmare with Friday's settlement. But the Trovan battle may not be over yet.

At the end of January 2009, a New York appeal court ruled Mr Etigwe and Mr Altschuler's case could be heard in the US. The Connecticut attorney says it could still go ahead. "Our case is firmly embedded in the US ... so a Nigerian settlement does not foreclose our case. But this is very good news. I'm glad we remained the constant gardener and could see this come to fruition."
