DACA Docs Phase 1: CDDEP File Recent Data Extended Medical Files

  Big Pharma companies in India are profiteering off sick and low-income citizens by selling them experimental antibiotics that create superbugs immune to treatment. According to recent data by the Center For Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP), India has the highest rates of drug-resistant bacterial infections in the world. It is also the largest consumer of antibiotics per capita.

Arstechnica.com reports: Now, new data paints a clearer picture as to why the country appears to be a breeding ground for drug resistant infections that threaten to spread within and beyond the country.

Drug companies—some international and even US-based—are selling millions of dubious and unapproved cocktails of antibiotics in India, all of which could spur the development of drug-resistant bacteria and imperil patients. The finding, published Monday in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology by UK health experts, suggests that the country poses a risk to global health and undermines efforts to....

The study authors, led by Patricia McGettigan of Queen Mary University of London, recommend firm regulatory action within India to ban these unapproved drug cocktails. They also call for the multinational drug companies producing some of the antibiotic mixtures—such as Abbott, GlaxoSmithKline, Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, and Merck/MSD—to be accountable for their products.

Drug companies “should be required to justify the sale of products in India that do not have the approval of their own national regulators and, in multiple cases, not even the approval of the Indian regulator,” they conclude.

Dodgy Doses UN

For the study, Prof. McGettigan and her colleagues pulled antibiotic sales figures from a commercial database of Indian drug distribution called PharmaTrac. They looked at sales between October 2007 and November 2012. They then compared the inventory of drugs sold in India to the list of drugs approved by India’s Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) as well as those approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medical Agency (EMA).

The researchers found that drug companies sold 86 regular, so-called “single-dose antibiotics” and 118 “fixed-dose combination” antibiotics over the five-year period. The FDC drugs are formulations composed of two or more drugs at fixed ratios in a single dose. They can include two or more antibiotics or antibiotics and a different type of drug, such as an anti-protozoal drug. Such combo formulations are rare in the US and UK; drug companies sold just five of these in the US and UK during the same period.

Many of the 118 sold in India were “poorly considered,” the authors note. Some combined antibiotics that needed to be taken at different intervals to work. For instance, one FDC paired an antibiotic that needs to be taken once a day with another that needs to be taken every eight hours to work effectively. Some combinations risked amplified side effects while others combined drugs that wouldn’t be given to treat the same illness.

Of the 118 types of FDCs, 75 (64 percent) had no approval from either the CDSCO, FDA, or EMA. Nearly all of the single-dose antibiotics were approved, on the other hand. Still, FDCs overall made up 34 percent of antibiotics sold in India by 2012—roughly 872 million doses that year. And 42 percent of the FDCs sold contained antibiotics that the World Health Organization considered “highest-priority critically important” drugs, which should be used sparingly.

Twelve multinational companies were responsible for making 53 of the 118 types of FDCs. These included Abbott, Astra Zeneca, Baxter, Bayer, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Merck/MSD, Novartis, Pfizer, Sanofi-Aventis, and Wyeth. Of the 53 FDCs, only four were approved by the FDA and/or the EMA, and 20 were not approved by even India’s CDSCO. US-based Abbott, which has been criticized for its antibiotic sales in India before, sold 18 of those 20 unapproved combination drugs. In 2014, Abbott made $367 million from FDC profits in India, Reuters reported in 2015. At the time, a company spokesperson said that its manufacturing and marketing in India is “aligned with local regulations.”

The authors noted that the Indian government has made attempts to ban the unapproved drugs. But the efforts have been held up in courts, and drug regulation is weak, generally.

“The use of unapproved, scrutinized antibiotic FDC formulations is likely to contribute to India’s rising antimicrobial resistance,” the authors conclude. “Until definitive action is taken to ban most systemic antibiotic FDCs from manufacture and sale, [antimicrobial resistance] initiatives in India are likely to be undermined and the global action plan impeded.”

ALERT ALERT

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.

Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
