A pesar de la estricta regulación del Derecho internacional sobre el uso de armas químicas, en algunos países todavía podemos verlas, aunque afortunadamente no es lo habitual. La ley prohíbe el desarrollo, almacenamiento y empleo de este tipo de armas

The Rise of Unregulated Drug Trials in South America | The Nation

The Rise of Unregulated Drug Trials in South America | The Nation | Science and law | Scoop.it

"A generation ago, most human testing took place in American academic institutions. Now it’s a global game dominated by corporations, called contract research organizations (CROs), that help Big Pharma bring new molecules from the lab to your medicine cabinet. More and more drug companies are turning to CROs for assistance with trial design and recruitment, regulatory compliance, marketing and branding—last year the CRO market was worth $20 billion, an estimated 100 percent jump from a decade ago. And CROs, in turn, are increasingly running trials in the developing world because doing so is cheaper and faster: regulations aren’t as onerous, patient recruitment is easier and informed consent is less clearly defined."

Leyre Albero's insight:

Actualmente en sudamerica están aumentando el número de ensayos clínicos ilegales, bien por falta de información a los pacientes de que estén participando en un ensayo o por incumplimiento de otras normas de la FDA, como se comenta en la noticia, este organismo solo envía inspectores en menos de un 1% de los casos.

Rise in experiments on animals in UK

Rise in experiments on animals in UK | Science and law | Scoop.it
The number of animal experiments carried out in the UK rose by 8% in 2012, according to Home Office figures.

Via Maria Nunzia @Varvera
Leyre Albero's insight:

A pesar del descenso del uso de animales en la Unión Europea en los últimos años, vemos que en algunos países, como en Reino Unido ha aumentado el uso. Esto se debe al incremento de animales modificados genéticamente, que son modelos que no es posible reemplazarlos por otros igualmente válidos para el estudio.

Luis Miguel Calzada Colina's curator insight, November 29, 2014 10:26 AM

Modificados genéticamente animales y un aumento en el número de experimentos con animales ... dos hechos muy controversiales que son las relaciones en este nuevo. 4,11 millones de experimentos científicos y el uso de más animales transgénicos que no hay animales transgénicos.

El Reino Unido tiene romper down las 3R (replacement, reducción y refinamiento). Todos sabemos que los animales son elementos esenciales en la investigación, por ejemplo en el campo de la pruebas farmacéuticas porque no podemos probar los medicamentos directamente en los seres humanos. Aunque son necesarios, considero que tenemos el deber moral de evitar este tipo de crueldades.

A pesar de tener una ley europea común que regula los alimentos transgénicos cada país tiene derecho a hacer una evaluación de riesgos con estudios propios. Francia es uno de los países que más se opone a los transgénicos, y como puede verse son capaces incluso de falsear datos para tratar de evitar estos productos.

Pepsi, Coke, Kellogg & Kraft Pulling GMOs from Europe — But Not the US

Pepsi, Coke, Kellogg & Kraft Pulling GMOs from Europe — But Not the US | Science and law | Scoop.it

Via Hans Gruen
Leyre Albero's insight:
Con los avances tecnológicos, las grandes marcas están incorporando cada vez más alimentos transgénicos entre sus productos. Las grandes diferencias de legislación entre unos países y otros o entre EEUU y la Unión Europea hacen del proceso de comercialización un procedimiento largó y complejo. Un conflicto que se plantea es el derecho que tiene la población a consumir lo que quieran y a saber lo que están consumiendo.
