A law intended to speed up development of new drugs for US kids has ended up financing clinical trials in poor countries, where the medicines might never become available

This is so abhorrent and cruel. Like these kids are persona non grata. Shames ua all.

I guess we now know the answer to the question: What is the value of six months of patent extension? One nation's children.

Thank you, Cal, for providing us with the information. Now, where is the petition to notify our congress on the day of primary elections?

This goes with the Indians who sell organs so as to feed their families! The West has always robbed and ill treated other countries, abusing poorer nations is something that runs with it.

It wouldn't be so bad if the drugs were made available at an affordable rate for them or well paid for a fully understandable explanation as a test subject. As drug companies are notorious for abusing and not paying people it is unlikely.

Shocking but not surprising. Who could we contact to voice our opposition to this practice?
