I hate to start out with another "could it be?, " but I 've got to. As you may have read there were six men in London England who were test subjects in a drug trial for an anti-inflammatory drug that was also useful in the treatment of Leukemia.

Chronic inflamation can result from many diseases such as Leukemia, Lupus Erythmatosis among others. The pain is frequently intense and causes a life of misery for many suffers of such illnesses.

So, it follows, these people might already be in poorer heath than most. We can accept these facts as given.

It is also true, well unless the CIA is doing the trials, that the person will know about the drug, in this case TGN-1412, and have been told that there are dangers with this test, but on the bright side, it might help ease the pain of these diseases.

Then they give their yay or nay via a signature or the lack thereof. Well Two of these six blokes are in ICU in hospital for serious reaction to these experimental drugs.

This too, sadly, is not unexpected unless the above mentioned exchange of information was limited or as in the case of the CIA, avoided entirely.

The problem here is with the way the trials were enacted. A German Pharmaceutical Company, TeGenero AG, enlisted an American Pharmaceutical Corporation, Parexel International Corporation, to do the testing.

Of course this begs the question, why would a German Drug company ask an American Drug Company to test a potentially dangerous drug in London?

Now, as most of us know, the Pharmaceutical Corporations in the US have been whining for years about the lengthy periods of time involved in making sure a medication is safe to use, and is less likely to kill you, or make the condition the patient has, a relief over the effects and side effects of the treatment.

If you listen much to the advertisements, we can see by the lengthy and sometimes serious side effects that some US-made medications are clearly being floated to see if people will take them despite the sometimes harsh and occasionally lethal side effects.

Further, American medicine has decided to devote enormous attention to drugs to give the ole boy a woody, and his intended, a slick place to do something with the new found toy.

"If you have an erection for more than four hours, see a physician immediately! " FOUR HOURS! How about four minutes! (Ahhh to be twenty again!!)

In any case one cannot wonder if this drug is not made by an AMERICAN Pharmaceutical Company, and using a circuitous route to test it to avoid US testing rules.

After 18 years in the business of Emergency Medicine, I can 't think of one reason why this formerly clandestine arrangement would have been made.

Sort of like getting a big Fire Cracker, an M-80 for instance, and being too scared to light it off. So you get the biggest dummy on the block to do it for you.

For me, though, it means that any "new " prescription drugs will get strip searched!
