    Government tested AIDS drugs on foster kids

    Government-funded researchers tested AIDS drugs on hundreds of foster children over the past two decades, often without providing them a basic protection afforded in federal law and required by some states, an Associated Press review has found.
    The research funded by the National Institutes of Health spanned the country. It was most widespread in the 1990s as foster care agencies sought treatments for their HIV-infected children that weren’t yet available in the marketplace.

    The practice ensured that foster children — mostly poor or minority — received care from world-class researchers at government expense, slowing their rate of death and extending their lives. But it also exposed a vulnerable population to the risks of medical research and drugs that were known to have serious side effects in adults and for which the safety for children was unknown.

    Research conducted in 7 states

    The research was conducted in at least seven states — Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Colorado and Texas — and involved more than four dozen different studies. The foster children ranged from infants to late teens, according to interviews and government records.

    Several studies that enlisted foster children reported patients suffered side effects such as rashes, vomiting and sharp drops in infection-fighting blood cells as they tested antiretroviral drugs to suppress AIDS or other medicines to treat secondary infections.

    In one study, researchers reported a “disturbing” higher death rate among children who took higher doses of a drug. That study was unable to determine a safe and effective dosage...

    Corbett said the chapter of Kennedy’s book he found the “most difficult to read through” was the one titled, “Dr. Fauci, Mr. Hyde: NIAID’s Barbaric and Illegal Experiments on Children,” which details the role of Fauci and the organization he heads up — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — in illegal experiments on foster children.

    “In this case [Fauci] was able to get control of different foster homes in seven states and essentially turn these pharmaceutical companies loose onto these children,” Kennedy said. “The experiments were absolutely barbaric … the children were tortured and they did not have legal representation.”

    Kennedy added:

    “The children who stopped taking the drugs because they were making them sick were sent to Columbia Hospital to have feeding tubes installed so the drug companies could [continue testing on them] even when they fought back. At least 85 of these kids died.”...
