    Human Experimentation without informed consent is at the center of a Senate Judicary Committee Investigation of a Prestiguous Academic University, which was reopened after violations of USC 1001 of the Federal Code.

    "Human Experimentation without informed consent is at the center of a Senate Judicary Committee Investigation of a Prestiguous Academic University, which was reopened after violations of USC 1001 of the Federal Code.

     

    Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 10, 2014

     

    Since 2008, the Honorable Senator Grassley has investigated Northwestern University for allegations surrounding Human Experimentation without Informed consent. According to FDA documents, 667 patients received the non-approved FDA devices from 2006-2008, prior to FDA approval.

     

    The FDA approval came only after the device was tested in 100 unsuspecting patients during open heart surgery. The results of the study published in the Harvard Based Surgical Journal, Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular surgery in 2008 claimed " informed consent." Recent publically available court documents from Cook County demonstrate that the patients consent was waived.

    Some of these critical documents were never provided by Northwestern University to the Honorable Senator Grassley during the Senate Finance investigation, and now are a subject of reopened Senate investigation as of March 4, 2014. The lack of disclosure violates USC 1001.

    For years, the Senate Finance Committee investigated the testing of the non-approved Devices in patients during open heart surgery without informed consent. However, key documents surrouding the patients' testing were withheld from the Senate Committee, the FDA, and the patients.

    Northwestern University Board of Trustees have known about the human experiments, since July 2009. Yet the board, has not set up a meeting with the former Northwestern Professor, Dr. Nalini M. Rajamannan, to help inform the patients, provide proper health care for the patients, and restore the integrity of this great University.

     

    The Myxo Files released on Amazon.com contain summaries, and documents from the Public Domain, to try and get help for the innocent unsuspecting patients.
