Discussion: a price for advances in medicine. Phase I clinical trial fail in France

Let me suggest a topic for discussion that might be a bit provocative. It's about the prices that sometimes we have to pay for advances in medicine. Ist phase clinical trial of a new painkiller drug manufactured by Bial (Portugal) failed with one man brain-dead and another five ones in critical state with neurologic symptoms, three of them are suspected to have irreversable changes in their CNS. [Links to news articles below] What is your opinion: who carries responsibility for these cases? Bial, Biotrial clinic that carried out the trial or maybe somone else involved? What kind of responsibility must it be provided the fact people involved in the study are volunteers and must have been consulted about specificity and all the issues that can arise in phase I clinical trials? Could there take place unproperly done preclinical trial? What do you think about it? ||You can follow these links to get more information about the case: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35337671 http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/857379

A champion for medicine’s humanity

“Man’s inhumanity to man, Makes countless thousands mourn,” wrote Robert Burns in 1784. Evidence of that inhumanity is all around us, in reports from the world’s war zones, the refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe, and closer to home wherever we are. This week, with the annual celebration of Burns’s birthday, we also celebrate your support for a charity whose volunteers provide healthcare to vulnerable people suffering the effects of inhumanity.

Memories of Robert B. Zajonc - Association for Psychological Science

Robert Zajonc was a consummate scientist, scholar and social science researcher. His was a remarkable life, a life led during a renaissance period of social psychology and he had much to do with its development and flourishing over the latter half of the 20th century. Exposed to all forms of personal suffering during his youth and young adulthood, Bob found his way to America and Ann Arbor after spending much of his formative period in his beloved Poland and France during WWII. These experiences would form the crucible for his professional and personal experiences for the remainder of his life. The facts of his scientific and professional contribution are easily documented — seven distinct scientific lines of inquiry; hundreds of scientific papers, each a seminal contribution; dozens of doctoral students, honorary degrees, scientific awards and medals — the list endless and richly deserved. Robert was also a builder. He served as head of the newly developed social psychology program in psychology at Michigan in the 1970s, Director of the Research Center for Group Dynamics in the 1980s, and Director of the Institute for Social Research in the 1990s. All received Robert’s unique imprint for rigor, quality, and innovation. Bob also played a seminal role in the development of social psychology in Europe, leading to the establishment of the Institute for Social Science Research in Warsaw. Bob was also a father, husband, friend, colleague, and mentor. As chronicled in these remembrances from his first doctoral student, Eugene Burnstein, to Piotr Winkielman, his last student at the University of Michigan, Bob passed along his remarkable scientific judgment and insights that will stand the test of history. But there are others in this list between these two bookend students, distinguished scientists all, Richard Nisbett, Susan Fiske, Mahzarin Banaji, Paula Niedenthal, John Bargh and Richard Moreland who were graduate students, colleagues, co-authors, and deep and abiding friends over the decades.
