Basel-based Roche's Tamiflu has proven effective in treating swine flu, but stocks held "clearly aren't enough," WHO's director-general, Dr. Margaret Chan, said on a media call.

These drug companies actually in their pursuit of wealth, are used as political weapons by aggression against the health systems of poor countries through the monopoly of policy practices that go against medical ethics established by Louis Pasteur:"I do not interested in who you are or you think, I just want to know that hurts, what is your disease"
Countries like Africans nations, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, India and China are key parts of the engine of the global economy and are at risk, precisely for that patent policy and the transfer of medical technology, moreover, by the Vatican bioetica is unacceptable to the Roman Catholic world that most of humanity has no justice, no peace by the eagerness of a rich group of shareholders that monopolize patents abbots as Umberto Eco described in his novel "The Name of Rose."
