Early testing was abruptly discontinued when, during the end of the first trial run, several test subjects were placed in a room together.

From the lead doctor's notes: "It was intense. You could feel something change in the room. The three of them looked at each other for a few seconds, and then all just started babbling simultaneously. It wasn't until later that we realized they'd somehow managed to develop an entirely new language inside of 20 minutes. Body language became increasingly agitated. They seemed upset, like they were trapped. When we sent men in to calm things down, they were overpowered in moments. If we hadn't had the failsafe systems in place..."

Later trial runs used a significantly distilled version of the serum, and test subjects were kept isolated for the duration of the experiments.
