Public Citizen informed Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius that it is deeply troubled to learn that NIH has silenced an expert within the agency who has previously raised serious concerns about the ethics of clinical trials with designs that are very similar, if not identical, to that of the Surfactant, Positive Pressure, and Oxygenation Randomized Trial (SUPPORT study) involving extremely premature babies.
