Dy’er Sez: I wonder who ultimately made the call to use desperate people for these experiments. OF COURSE they’ll allow for themselves to be experimented on for money; they are homeless after all. Reminds me a bit of the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.
For thoes who don’t read history books, the Tuskegee experiment happened in the USA between the 1930-1970’s. Is was a government run program to see what the effects were of untreated Syphillis. All of thoes experimented on were poor black men; they were told that they were being treated for “Bad Blood”, but in fact they were not treated at all, meerly observed as they wasted away form Syphilis. More info on this HERE. The story is from the London Telegraph.
Homeless people die after bird flu vaccine trial in Poland
Three Polish doctors and six nurses are facing criminal prosecution after a number of homeless people died following medical trials for a vaccine to the H5N1 bird-flu virus.

The medical staff, from the northern town of Grudziadz, are being investigated over medical trials on as many as 350 homeless and poor people last year, which prosecutors say involved an untried vaccine to the highly-contagious virus.
Authorities claim that the alleged victims received £1-2 to be tested with what they thought was a conventional flu vaccine but, according to investigators, was actually an anti bird-flu drug.
The director of a Grudziadz homeless centre, Mieczyslaw Waclawski, told a Polish newspaper that last year, 21 people from his centre died, a figure well above the average of about eight.
