Raid and arrests took place on six sites on the Canton of Zurich, Aargay and Thurgau (Switzerland). The justice suspect those persons to violate the therapeutic products law in manufacturing and distributing in Switzerland and Italia drugs made from extracts of human cells. The Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products (Swissmedic) warned about the dangers of these drugs on patients health. Indeed, according to Swissmedic, patients chowing down these preparations can be infected by viruses such as HIV. The prosecutor said these drugs have been found in a particular clinic near Zurich.
