Serious Cannabis Testing Accident

31 posts in this topic

Six volunteers are seriously ill in hospital after a medical trial at a private clinic in France.

One of the six is described as "brain dead" while the other five are critically ill, according to the newspaper Ouest France.

The trial is related to a cannabis-based painkiller, led by a European laboratory, the newspaper said.

"A serious accident took place during a therapeutic trial near Rennes," Health Minister Marisol Touraine said.

She added that the trial had been halted and all volunteers taking part recalled.

The minister said the six patients had been in good health until taking the oral medication.

A formal investigation has been opened in Paris.

Bloody hell, I can't wait to hear more about this... What you reckon, is it something else in this 'cannabis based painkiller' that hurt them or after years of trying, have they finally made weed dangerous enough for doctors to prescribe it?

I don't know I can't see this being the actual weed so either somethings been put into them or put into this pain killer by accident or its been contaminated by bacteria or something.

Either way all I know is if they smoked a joint they'd be fine just now......

Maybe a pharmaceutical version of cannabis?

Made in a lab from chemicals to resemble cannabis.

I would hazard a guess that the labs tried to recreate THC or CBD etc on a molecular level, and in playing GOD they have possibly killed some people.

But rest assured the butt will stop at Cannabis, the blame will no doubt be placed on a poor old plant had FUCK ALL to do with the issue at hand. Cannabis has always been a favorite scape goat to folks like this...

E2A: Just had a look about and apparently the Lab is being investigated and the French Health Minsister is looking to "establish responsibility for this tragic accident", so I assume they are looking at Human Error rather than the Cannabis itself.

From the Guardian:

French drug trial leaves one brain dead and five critically ill

French health minister travels to clinic in Rennes, where all trials of the drug have been suspended

One person is brain dead and five others are seriously ill after taking part in a medical drug trial for an unnamed pharmaceutical firm at a clinic in north-west France

The French health ministry said the six patients had been in good health until taking the oral medication. The ministry did not say what the new medicine was intended to be used for, but a source close to the case told AFP that the drug was a painkiller containing cannabinoids, an active ingredient found in cannabis plants.

The health minister, Marisol Touraine, said the six had been taking part in a “trial of an oral medication being developed by a European laboratory” in Rennes, Brittany. The patients were admitted to hospital at the beginning of this week.

The ministry said the test was carried out by a private establishment “specialised in carrying out clinical trials”. Local media reported that the trial took place at the Biotrial clinic.

The trial was intended to test for side-effects of the new drug. All trials on the drug at the clinic have been suspended and the French state prosecutor has opened an inquiry.

The study was a phase one clinical trial, in which healthy volunteers take the medication to “evaluate the safety of its use, tolerance and pharmacological profile of the molecule”, Touraine said.

Medical trials typically have three phases to assess a new drug or device for safety and effectiveness. Phase one entails a small group of volunteers, and focuses only on safety. Phase two and three are progressively larger trials to assess the drug’s effectiveness, although safety remains paramount.

Touraine is travelling to Rennes where she will give a press conference this afternoon.
