Two drug trial men critically ill

`Two men remain critically ill and four others are in a serious condition after suffering a violent reaction while taking part in a clinical drugs trial. [..]

As there was no antidote and doctors did not know what had happened, they were having to treat the patients on a “symptomatic basis”, [a lawyer] said. [..]

Ms Marshall, 35, whose boyfriend is critically ill, said the normally healthy 28-year-old’s face was so puffed, he “looks like the Elephant Man”.’
