Indore: June 04, 2011
Nearly 40 doctors and 18 hospitals in Indore, from both the government and the private sector, are being investigated for malpractices in clinical trials conducted by them. This follows shocking revelations of the details of some of these medical trials. For instance, over 1,100 children have been used in clinical trials from which doctors in a leading government medical college earned lakhs of rupees. In one shocking case, out of the nine subjects of a trial on the possible use of the drug tadalafil in pulmonary hypertension (otherwise used for male erectile dysfunction), seven were women and one was a 17-year-old boy, all from poor families.
