Share the Research Data, NOW…

Normally this blog is not meant to address current events, but the Ebola outbreak begs a compelling question:

Why can’t the Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc share the basic data that led to the creation of ZMapp, with other research labs around the world? That way other countries can make their own decisions about how and when to use any serum they may or may not be able to manufacture in time.

  1. I had no idea this was happening but like anything else with large corporations it probably has something to do with protecting their patents and profits.

    • Probably, but unethical, imho. I wonder if there is any way that we can put pressure on the firm to at least share some of the data that could help later (I know there is not enough time right now to make a diff., as these things take years to develop).

      Maybe at least telling others will help to eventually change minds, and bring us all to a more cooperative way of thinking?
      Peace,
