U.S.-Cuba Clinical Drug Trial (Scam) is Not the First
Last week, in an article entitled, “In a first, U.S. trial to test Cuban lung-cancer vaccine,” The Washington Post‘s health reporter wrote:
“The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first clinical trial to test a Cuban drug in the United States — a lung-cancer vaccine developed in Havana.”
Obama, the Castro regime and its lobbyists also celebrated and sensationalized the story.
But facts matter: Not only is this cancer drug not a vaccine — but this U.S.-Cuba clinical trial is not a first.
These bio-scams — courtesy of Castro’s regime — have long been authorized by U.S. law.
For example, in 2004, another one of Castro’s cancer “vaccines” was licensed to U.S.-based CancerVax.
Pursuant to intense lobbying, the Treasury Department caved and authorized U.S. trials for the cancer vaccine.
