      Namaskar,

      On this issue I participated on Law Point discussion on Sakhsi TV some time back --

      On clinical trails or studies, they rarely register -- in USA it is 23.27%; in China it is 16.297% and in India it is only meagre 1.904%. Since 2009 1954 killed.  Here un-noticed is the side effects part. Government says these were monitored by ethic committees but unfortunately the members of these committees themselves have vested interests in these trails. See the case of Bhopal gas tragedy victims.  Unfortunately there is no stringent law to punish them.  Huge money involved -- 2009 they spent around $ 200 million and in 2010 it is $ one billion.  ICMR launched July 2007 clinical trails registry.  Medical journals encouraged to publish such reports which are registered and yet this state off affair but no legal obligation to register

      World Medical Association founded in 1947 brought  Holsinki declaration on Ethics Rules in 1964, a five pages document.  Last updated in 2008.

      As many as 436 people died last year due to serious adverse events (SAE) during clinical trials. Investigations are now on to ascertain how many of the deaths were caused by drugs administered to the trial subjects.
