So I suppose I should post about this. This page has been around a long time – and I shared my experiences in my participation in three PTSD clinical studies. It’s pretty much how this page began. I documented it here and on my Facebook page. A play-by-play, day-by-day of my participation in the trials. And how the trials were investigated by the FDA, the data tossed, principal investigator let go… Well, he embezzled money from trials, too. Lots of it. And was arrested for it. Not just from NYU, but from Yale. And his punishment? Well read for yourself.
Sometimes I wonder if NYU had any idea of how often the safety of their human research subjects was being placed at risk – but how could they not know? The FDA dinged them on multiple violations for the Pfizer drug trial (Protocol #B0541013), however that study wasn’t the only one in which NYU’s regard for subject safety is questionable. An earlier brain imaging study (S12-01521), a collaborative effort between NYU and Yale, had problems as well. As I mentioned in my open letter to NYU, one of the incidents that I believe jeopardized my safety was being put on a
Well…that didn’t go quite as expected. It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but there have been some changes in the studies that I’ve kept quiet about for quite some time. I wasn’t really ready to share my disappointment. I left with the hope of the drug trials getting further approval and extending. I had an offer of participation from Dr Neumeister in longer-term trials, should they become available. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened. Both drug trials are no longer active; Dr Neumeister no longer works for NYU; all data from ALL THREE studies is trashed; and there is a
