Hyderabad: June 18, 2011
A day after the chilling exposure of clinical trials on poverty-stricken women by a pharma major in Hyderabad, the Andhra Pradesh government raided and sealed the offices of a drug company. Health officials claimed to have recovered enough evidence of the involvement of the company in the clinical trials of breast cancer drugs. ‘‘Company staff admitted some women were tested with drugs which are yet to get permission,’’ said officials. Drug control authorities also seized Axis Lab near Miyapur in Hyderabad where the trials were carried out.
