Nigeria files $7 billion against Pfizer




Big Pharma gets a major wake-up call. But are they listening?

The Kano state suit alleges that Pfizer administered an untested drug called Trovan Floxacin without authorisation on almost 200 children infected with meningitis in the state.

The federal lawsuit echoes those charges.

“In the midst of the epidemic, Pfizer devised a scheme under which it misrepresented and failed to disclose its primary motive in seeking to participate in giving care to the victims of the epidemic,” it alleges.

“Pfizer never disclosed that it intended to experiment on vulnerable victims or conduct any clinical trials without the necessary approvals from regulatory agencies in Nigeria but pretended it came to render humanitarian service.”
