View Press Release

Public Citizen called on the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) to immediately direct the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to terminate enrollment in the Crystalloid Liberal or Vasopressors Early Resuscitation in Sepsis trial (CLOVERS) and launch a compliance oversight investigation of the trial. The design of CLOVERS is deeply flawed and exposes subjects to unacceptable dangers, included increased risks of organ failure and death.
