The Body Hunters
Testing New Drugs on the World's Poorest Patients

Shah, Sonia
Publisher:  New Press
Resource Type:  Book

This is a review on the rise of drug companies as well as the difficulties of medical research ethics. Shaw states that companies make more money developing drugs to treat American heatburn than malaria drugs. Attempts to expose drug companies have failed because of litigation. There is no mention of where and what pharmaceuticals test on the "poorest patients". Her recommendation is that medicines should be regarded as "social goods" and as such.
