Data Falsification: Food and Drug Data Fudged
Nature. 1983 Apr 14; 302(5909): 560.
Dr. Wilbert Aronow, a prominent cardiologist, has agreed to disqualify himself from future new drug trials in the face of evidence that he submitted false data to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the efficacy of several drugs. An account is provided of the FDA's handling of the case and of a related investigation of Aronow's current work for the Environmental Protection Agency on the effect of carbon monoxide on heart patients.
