US Reportedly Experimenting on Nepali Soldiers

ible that the resultant military and economic dependence of the host institution/population (RNA) upon the research sponsor (the U.S. Military) threatened the voluntary nature of the institutional and individual participation in the trial."

Though the trial ended in 2003, it is not known who the volunteer soldiers are and what their present medical condition is. Last week, Glaxo released information at a scientific meeting, saying the vaccine was successful, but kept silent about making it available in Nepal. Now epidemiologists at Yale's School of Medicine and other activists have raised the issue afresh, expressing the fear that the trial might have been unethical.

"The poorest of the poor were used as subjects," a Yale project staff said on condition of anonymity. "There's no plan for getting the vaccine to the (Nepali) population, despite clearly pitching the trial as an attempt to address this disease for Nepalis. It appears that the vaccine will be developed as a traveler’s vaccine at best."

The fear seems plausible since in the 1980s, the same Walter Reed Army Institute of Research sponsored the development of a typhoid vaccine in Nepal. However, though typhoid is endemic in Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world, the vaccine is not widely used.
