Scientists Infected from Lab Strain Disease

Dr. Adu Bobie became infected with laboratory strain of meningoccal disease while working in biotech industry in 2005 which resulted in the loss of both legs and an arm. "The organism that infected Dr Adu-Bobie was indistinguishable from that under investigation in the laboratory." This is another example of improper use of safety procedures, lack of regulations and oversight in this industry and lack of rights to injured biotech workers. See story.

When will the public "wake up" to the scientific misconduct, cover-up and disregard for public health and safety within the biotech industry?


  1. Please go on 60 minutes and publicize this more. Why let them do this? Its happening more and more. Much more than any of us realize in our busy but threatened lives. People must be educated about this.

  2. This research seems to be operating without even the most fundamental protections for employee safety. This is not the first case I have heard of, and it seems the employers cannot be held accountable. It reminds me of the coal workers early in the last century, or the meat packers. Where is Upton Sinclair when we need him?
