A manufacturing company ‘Servier’ has been blamed and accused of manslaughter and carelessness in a criminal court in Paris when it conducted a trial or experiment in September on some of the diabetic patients which resulted in their death as a result of the consumption of a weight loss pill. This is considered to be one of the considerable dishonored and planned conspiracies in the healthcare business in France.
A medicine named Mediator, which was pulled out and rejected from the commercial markets long back since 2009 has compromised and taken the lives of nearly 2,100 people due to the mere consumption of the pill. The reports claim that since 1976, the drug has been consumed by almost 5 million people. It was pretty obvious and evident that the firm has denied the charges and speculations, it has caused unalterable and irreversible damage to the health of thousands and thousands of other people. Certain research of a few doctors concludes that Mediator was responsible for heart valve malfunctions from the previous reports from the users and consumers of the drug. Some studies showed 500 deaths from 1976 to 2009, while some took the figure to 2000 and more. In spite of all the speculations and the report claims, Mediator has been among the 50 most-prescribed drugs in France. The drug was supposed to be offered to the patients who gained a few pounds, whereas the drug was meant to be prescribed only diabetics alone.
