BAD BLOOD - The Worst Medical Disaster in U.S. History. Ten years in the making and told through the eyes of survivors and family members, the documentary film "Bad Blood" chronicles how a miracle treatment for hemophilia became an agent of death for 10,000 Americans. Faced with evidence that pharmaceutical companies and government regulators knew the medicine was contaminated with deadly viruses, they launched a powerful and inspiring fight to right the system that failed them and to make it safer for all. The film brings together patients, doctors, drug manufacturers and government regulators to revisit how the worst medical disaster of the 20th century was allowed to occur and cautions us to remember, remain vigilant and to demand a safer system.
