Would you sign up to catch a deadly disease and live in isolation for weeks? These friends did
The friends are among dozens of Canadians participating in a human challenge trial — a type of medical study that involves purposely infecting people with a particular pathogen. In this case, it's the bacteria Bordetella pertussis, known for causing potentially deadly whooping cough. The study, more than a decade in the making, is one of the first of its kind in Canada. The research team's goal? Better understanding the progression of whooping cough, which affects between 1,000 and 3,000 Canadians each year, in hopes of eventually developing an improved vaccine. "In order to make this type of study ethical, the pathogen has to be one that is not going to cause, or unlikely to cause, severe disease or death," Dr. Scott Halperin, director of the Canadian Center for Vaccinology, says. People in the study earn a few thousand dollars to compensate for their time trapped indoors, getting poked and prodded by medical staff. -GlobalNews
