In 2013:THE UNSUSPECTING PATIENTS WITH NO FDA PROTECTION DURING CLINICAL TESTING OF DEVICES
There are human experiments that are currently being run at top hospitals across the country without informed consent while patients are under general anesthesia. Patients are not given the opportunity to provide informed consent for the testing of newly developed heart devices.
A recently published expose, The Myxo File Part I -XII, published on Amazon.com and Kindle Direct Publishing provide the documents from the FDA, communications with the White House and Congress to try and get help for the patients. So far, the requests for an investigation, over 5 years still no response. President Barak Obama, inquired into the situation twice but the FDA is not reporting to the White House, the over 4,000 adverse events and over 645 deaths from these heart devices.
Communications and letters from the White House are in the Myxo File Part II.
The Company reported to the SEC that a new device was being invented for myxomatous mitral valve disease. The company provided a similar disclosure to the US patent office regarding the 40 new claims for a new invention. However, the FDA was not informed of the clinical trial until 2 years after the initial prototypes were manufactured and the disclosure was from a patient.
The Honorable Senator John McCain. First Lady Obama, and Senator Richard Lugar are the only Government Individuals who wrote on behalf of the patients in Illinois and Indiana to the FDA.
Patients are suffering while under general anesthesia. The Myxo File Part I –XII, demonstrates the heart attack, cardiac arrest and repeat surgery in patients who never agreed to be guinea pigs.
These experiments would benefit the company and the inventor in royalties and profits, but the facts regarding the adverse events were left out of the final scientific publication. The laws that protect human subjects date back to World War II after the Nuremberg Trials, and are currently protected under the Common Rule. HHS, FDA, NIH, are responsible for the protection of these human lives in the United States and no response from these US Federal agencies to help the victims of illegal surgical human experiments.
Human beings have the right to know if they receive an experimental device while under general anesthesia.

"NAZI MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS
Result of a medical experiment on a prisoner. Buchenwald concentration camp, Germany, date uncertain.
— US Holocaust Memorial Museum
During World War II, a number of German physicians conducted painful and often deadly experiments on thousands of concentration camp prisoners without their consent.
Unethical medical experimentation carried out during the Third Reich may be divided into three categories...."
"The second category of experimentation aimed at developing and testing pharmaceuticals and treatment methods for injuries and illnesses which German military and occupation personnel encountered in the field. At the German concentration camps of Sachsenhausen, Dachau, Natzweiler, Buchenwald, and Neuengamme, scientists tested immunization compounds and sera for the prevention and treatment of contagious diseases, including malaria, typhus, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, yellow fever, and infectious hepatitis. The Ravensbrueck camp was the site of bone-grafting experiments and experiments to test the efficacy of newly developed sulfa (sulfanilamide) drugs. At Natzweiler and Sachsenhausen, prisoners were subjected to phosgene and mustard gas in order to test possible antidotes.?"
