Public Citizen called on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Inspector General to immediately investigate the actions taken by senior National Institutes of Health (NIH) officials, including the agency’s Principal Deputy Director, to muzzle the agency’s own scientific experts, thereby effectively interfering with the HHS Office for Human Research Protections’ (OHRP’s) compliance oversight evaluation of ethical and regulatory lapses involving a major ongoing NIH-funded sepsis clinical trial.
