Thank you for your question.

There are a few defenses available under "contract theory". Likely the most direct defense would be for "moral hazard", or based on taking undue risks because the costs are not borne by the party taking the risk (hence the indemnification). Similarly they can claim adverse selection since the only parties that would sue would likely be the ones who received negative results from the medication, not those who were assisted. Finally they can attempt to argue over the contract language, claim the liability is incomplete, and that they cannot be held liable over missing clauses or terms in the agreement.

Good luck.
