Forums - General Discussion - French Drug Company used 700K Filipino kids as lab rats with potential killer dengue vaccine

Concerns over the dengue immunization of nearly 734,000 children aged nine and above resulted in two Philippine congressional inquiries and a criminal investigation as to how the danger to public health came about.  The country ordered Sanofi to stop the sale, distribution and marketing of Dengvaxia after the company last month warned the vaccine could worsen the disease in some cases.  “They were fined and their certificate of product registration was suspended,” Health Secretary Francisco Duque said told Reuters.  The Food and Drugs Administration of Philippines found Sanofi violating post-marketing surveillance requirements, he added.  Sanofi was not immediately available for comment.  The government spent 3.5 billion pesos ($70.2 million) for the Dengvaxia public immunization program in 2016 to reduce the 200,000 dengue cases reported every year.

Can we change that title from "made" to "used." Definitely has a different meaning.

Don't see the big deal but changed anyway.

This news is worrying me.

The dengue vaccine was supposed to prevent dengue from happening but this is turning out far worse. Here's an article for an extra read.

Absurd. I wish the best for your nephew, may everything be alright for him. How old is he?



Drug companies are literally the worst. The prices they charge are bad enough, but this just takes the cake.

Ten years old. He was in school when he got the shot like every kid who got the dengue vaccine.

Using the verb "made" in this sentence sounds like the drug company "created" the children using some form of test tube tech or something.  



Looks like Jack needs to pay them a visit! Wouldn't be the first time.

Yeah thanks. It is what it is. I wish it didn't happen but it did. We just have to push through as a family and hope the worst doesn't become a reality. :(
