Public Citizen, joined by nine prominent scholars in bioethics, law and history, called for an immediate investigation by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General into the conduct of senior HHS officials, who, according to an email trail, permitted top National Institutes of Health (NIH) officials to edit drafts of a letter documenting findings of what should have been an independent inquiry by the Office for Human Research Protections into serious ethical lapses in a major NIH trial.
