EVEN THE OLD WALL STREET JOURNAL REPORTED ON THIS!
"Lawmakers have raised concerns over whether IRBs routinely approve medical studies for paying clients. The committee leaders are considering whether to introduce a bill to strengthen IRB regulations.
Two IRBs contacted by the GAO's sting operators -- Argus IRB of Arizona and Fox IRB of Illinois -- rejected the Adhesiabloc proposal because of unanswered safety questions.
"We realized it was a terrible risk for the patient … It is the worst thing I have ever seen," an Argus IRB reviewer said, according to a slide shown at the hearing.
Coast IRB LLC of Colorado Springs, Colo., did approve a study for the fictitious adhesive gel, "Adhesiabloc." Five months after approving the study for abdominal surgery patients, Coast learned that neither Adhesiabloc nor its maker, Device Med-Systems of Virginia, existed.
Coast CEO Dan Dueber said in an interview that the congressional case was illegal entrapment."
AND THEN, IT JUST DROPPED OFF THE RADAR WITH A SLAP ON THE WRIST BY THE FDA, WHO WAS THE ONE WHO ACTUALLY GOT STUNG!
WHY SPEND PUBLIC MONEY TO CONDUCT STINGS AND THEN NOT BOTHER TO PROSECUTE ANYBODY?
ALTHOUGH THIS STORY APPEARED BRIEFLY IN A FEW MAINSTREAM MEDIA NEWSPAPERS, BESIDES THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, I LIKE THE FOLLOWING ACCOUNT BEST:
"The FDA farms out drug and medical device testing.
It’s in the hands of the companies hoping to gain approval for their products, but they must first get approval before doing tests on humans.
Even here, though, there’s a catch.
The FDA doesn’t review the testing plans.
That’s done by more for-profit companies, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).
But it gets worse.
The IRBs are paid by the companies hoping to gain FDA approval for their products.
So, it’s a conflict of interest on top of a conflict of interest.
"A ranking Food and Drug Administration official is facing four counts of soliciting prostitution and a single count of disorderly conduct stemming from his arrest by Howard County, Md., Police last month."
YEAH, YEAH, WHO CARES, RIGHT?
THAT'S HIS PRIVATE BUSINESS...BUT PRIVATE LIVES LAP OVER INTO OFFICES WHEN SOMEONE HAS AN EXSPENSIVE "HABIT" AND NEEDS FUNDING FOR IT.
"According to spokeswoman Erica Jefferson. "Dr. Maisel is still employed by the agency and is working."
WE ALSO OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T CARE WHEN A LOT OF DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE WORKERS GOT BUSTED FOR PARTICIPATION IN A CHILD PORNOGRAPHY RING.
THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT'S ADDICTION SHOULDN'T SURPRISE ANYONE AS THEIR TOP GOVERNMENT CONTRACTORS HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF AND PROVED TO HAVE BEEN DEALING IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING AS WELL AS SUPPORTING CHILD SEX RINGS MANY TIMES,
A FEW OF THOSE HAVE EVEN BEEN INDICTED FOR MURDER.
NO BIGGIE...IT'S OUR "UNCLE SAM'S" BOYS, YES?
OUR JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WAS BUSTED IN 2010 FOR A PFIZER RULING THAT SAW THE BIG DRUG COMPANY GET OF SCOT FREE AFTER BEING CAUGHT DRUG-DEALING!
“Prosecutors said that excluding Pfizer would most likely lead to Pfizer’s collapse, with collateral consequences: disrupting the flow of Pfizer products to Medicare and Medicaid recipients, causing the loss of jobs including those of Pfizer employees who were not involved in the fraud, and causing significant losses for Pfizer shareholders.”
NOW YOU OR I WOULD HAVE GONE TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR THIS, BUT PFIZER DIDN'T, NOR HAVE OTHER DRUG COMP[ANIES CAUGHT DOING THE SAME THING!
"MORE PFIZER FRAUD REVEALED IN ITS GENETICALLY ENGINEERED AIDS-LIKE VIRUS PROGRAM"In another stunning legal matter, Pfizer recently lost an employment claim when scientists became infected with a genetically-engineered AIDS-like virus, reports Raw Story. Pfizer supervisors threatened to falsify an employee’s reviews if she didn’t keep quiet about safety violations, eventually firing her.
WHAT'S PFIZER UP TO TODAY?
WE DON'T KNOW!
OUR GOVERNMENT MAKES THE WORLD'S RENOWN MAFIAS LOOK LIKE SAINTS.
MASTER CRIMINALS SEEM TO BE IN HIGH DEMAND IN VERY HIGH PLACES.
LOOK AT THE "SHAKEUP" IN THE CIA AND THE FALL OF SOME OF THE PENTAGON'S BIGGEST NAMES...AND THE WHOLE SCENARIO REPLAYS AGAIN AND AGAIN.
BUT WHO CARES WHO'S IN CHARGE AND WHO CARES IF WE'RE SAFE FROM MEDICAL FRAUD SO BIG PHARMA CAN PROSPER, AND WHO CARES IF SICKOS ARE SITTING IN GOVERNMENT OFFICES LOOKING AT PHOTOS OF NUDE AND SEXUALLY ABUSED KIDS...OR IF THE FDA WOULD APPROVE HUMAN STUDIES ON A NONEXISTENT DRUG...OR...OR ANYTHING?
CRIMINAL AGENCIES NEED CRIMINALLY-MINDED STAFF, RIGHT?
