CJD deaths in France due to contaminated HG hormones
Today, doctors, pharmacists and other medical officials are on trial in France, accused of treating children with tainted growth hormones in the 1980's, resulting in over 100 deaths from CJD. Over 800 more people may be at risk for this terrifying disease. While the US and Britain stopped using growth hormones manufactured from human pituitary glands in 1985 due to concerns about contamination, France continued the practice. Despite warnings in 1980 from scientist Luc Montagnier, the scientist who discovered the AIDS virus. Luminaries from the scientific world, including 1997 Nobel Prize Winner for Medicine, Stanlely Prusiner, who identified prions, are testifying in the trial.
Seventeen years ago, family members brought suit against the medics. They are accused of not disclosing the dangers of treatment to parents and of violating safety practices. Investigators have uncovered evidence that harvested pituitary glands were purchased from Eastern Europe neurological and infectious disease units. A pharmacology professor is accused of taking bribes. If convicted he faces 10 years in prison. CFD symptoms can take 30 years to manifest.
