The drug trial: Nancy Olivieri and the science scandal that rocked the Hospital for Sick Children
Audio avec voix humaine
In August 1998, a doctor named Nancy Olivieri, working with young people who suffered from a rare blood disorder, discovered serious problems with an experimental drug manufactured by Apotex. Though her research contract required her to remain silent, she decided… she had no choice but to warn the patients involved in the trials, while Apotex reacted by cancelling her research and slamming her reputation. The Olivieri affair spawned two inquiries and multiple lawsuits, which revealed the weaknesses in medical research as well as a story of scientific rivalry and revenge. Some strong language. 2005.
