James A. Halikas M.D. The Minnesota board reprimanded Dr. Halikas and placed conditions on his license for improper conduct in research, including unethical and unprofessional conduct, improper management of medical records, and violating a federal law which relates to the practice of medicine or in part regulates the practice of medicine, arising from research testing GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate) in Hmong drug addicts. Dr. Halikas was disciplined by the Florida Board of Medical Examiners in a sister board action following the stipulated order issued by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice on 1998-05-09. Dr. Halikas contested the Florida decision. Additional information is available by following the link below to the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings case docket.

Andrew Russell Kaufman, M.D. Dr. Kaufman participated in a research project that offered participants a $25 gift code to amazon.com as an incentive. After the study concluded Dr. Kaufman used nearly all the remaining gift codes, which had been purchased with unrestricted grant money from a pharmaceutical company, to purchase personal items. Dr. Kaufman later took steps to cancel the order and return the merchandise. However, as a result of his actions, Dr. Kaufman was suspended from the residency program and notified that his status would be listed as nonprogram completion, which caused his resident training license to become inactive. Duke University and Dr. Kaufman have since executed an agreement providing for a six-month remediation program beginning on January 1, 2009 that will enable Dr. Kaufman to complete his residency program.

** Warren Levin, M.D. The Connecticut board alleged, among other things, that Dr. Levin used Dimercapto-propane sulfonate (DMPS) and PolyMVA (drugs without FDA marketing approvals). According the Investigative Report The consultant states that the documentation respondent provided regarding his involvement in research is unacceptable. Respondent's billing records suggest another motive for performing the tests. The material provided to support some of respondent's practices and tests, includes case series, testimonials and commentary. There is no evidence of randomized, blinded, or reproducible research. The research documentation respondent provided does not include the protocol used, informed consent, quality controls, signed statement of the investigator, the Institutional Review Board or the FDA's IND document. The consultant questions why were the patients involved in research required to pay for their tests and treatments. On 2005-06-05 Dr. Levin signed a consent agreement which restricted re-application for licensure in Connecticut but specifically denied any and all wrong-doing. Dr. Levin was the principal investigator for a study titled Effects of Growth Hormone (GH) or Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GRF) on Age-Related Insulin Resistance, Pulmonary Function and Quality of Life which was reviewed and approved by the Great Lakes College of Clinical Medicine Institutional Review Board.

Harley R. McDaniel, M.D. Texas State Board of Medical Examiners Letter of Reprimand. 1987-09-29: http://www.circare.org/pd/mcdanielreprimand_19870929.pdf

Leonard Maitland McEwen BM BCh Dr. McEwan provided investigational biologic products for research testing Enzyme Potentiated Desensitization (EPD), which was reviewed and approved by the Great Lakes College of Clinical Medicine IRB and conducted over several years by Welman A. Shrader, M.D. and more than seventy co-investigators. On 2001-04-04 FDA sent a warning letter to principal investigator Shrader objecting to various violations of FDA regulation including failure to obtain informed consent and failure to file an Investigational New Drug application prior to enrolling research subjects. (12) On 2006-09-01 the General Medical Council found Dr. McEwan's fitness to practice to be impaired as a result of failure to maintain patient confidentiality and improbity in soliciting patients to invest in the manufacture of components of EPD, in which latter Dr. McEwan had a significant financial stake. Among other things, the council determined that:

The Panel has heard that you have worked for a number of years as a private practitioner offering medical advice and treatment for allergies and food intolerances. During the course of your work you saw patients and provided them with Enzyme Potentiated Desensitisation (EPD) treatment, which was manufactured by a small family company, McEwen Laboratories Ltd. The Panel has heard that you were the Scientific Director of, and a shareholder of, McEwen Laboratories Ltd, owning 34% of the company. You were one of four Directors of the company, the others being your wife and two of your sons.

The EPD Study Office of McEwen Laboratories maintained a database of patients in order to assist in the evaluation of the efficacy of EPD treatment. The information held on this database was drawn from treatment evaluation forms completed by patients who had received EPD treatment. This included forms from patients who had received EPD treatment from you. You were responsible for obtaining this information and the use of the information supplied for clinical purposes.

In 2004 a group of patients who had commenced EPD treatment received a letter. You were the first signatory of this letter in your capacity as a doctor. The letter indicated that in order to secure the future of EPD treatment, McEwen Laboratories Ltd needed to take steps towards the full licensing and marketing of the product, intended to raise capital through a new company, Epidyme Ltd, and that Epidyme Ltd needed to raise approximately 300,000 in order to commence operations. The letter stated that the minimum level of investment was 5,000 and that the capital raised was intended to begin the process of exploiting on a commercial scale the intellectual property of McEwen Laboratories Ltd.

A decision was taken in June 2004 by the Directors of McEwen Laboratories Ltd, at a Board meeting, to use information held on the database as the source material for the letter soliciting funding. You were present at the meeting in your capacity as Chairman/Managing Director and Scientific Director of McEwen Laboratories Ltd. You acquiesced to the use of the information held on the database and therefore permitted McEwen Laboratories Ltd to use the names and contact details of the patients, all of whom had received EPD treatment.

The EPD patients were informed in the letter that we are writing to you because we believe that you have received one or more shots of EPD and that we hope you have benefited from EPD and would like the treatment to remain available. The letter concluded with the sentence that we know that without this capital the production of EPD will not be able to continue. You thereby encouraged patients to invest in Epidyme Ltd, in which McEwen Laboratories Ltd would be the majority shareholder, by implying that, without such investment, their treatment would no longer be available.

The Panel has found that by your actions you have breached the confidence of patients and that your actions were inappropriate and unprofessional.

Joseph Py, D.O. According to the Maine Board of Osteopathic Licensure, since 2001 Dr. Py had been involved in an Institutional Review Board approved by the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation (IBOMF) so the results of his IV H2O2 therapy of patients could be gathered and reviewed as part of a study. The design of the study was reviewed and approved by the IBOMF and its Institutional Review Board (IRB). Dr. Py understood that the IRB was approved and sanctioned by the FDA, which the Board has not been able to verify. On 1997-06-02, however, FDA suspended the authority of the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation Inc. Institutional Review Board to review or approve research subject to FDA regulation. The suspension resulted from the IRB's failure to protect the rights and welfare of research subjects in compliance with FDA regulations.

** Jack E. Slingluff, D.O. Dr. Slingluff is a founding member of the Great Lakes Association of Clinical Medicine. (10) On 2004-03-16 Dr. Slingluff signed a plea agreement to settle federal charges arising from the sale of Laetrile to FDA undercover agents:

Osteopath Found Administering Intravenous Laetrile Treatments to Cancer Patients

This investigation was initiated in May 2002, based on a consumer complaint to FDA's Cincinnati District Office regarding Dr. Jack Edwin Slingluff, Canton, Ohio, a licensed osteopath. The complaint alleged that Dr. Slingluff was administering intravenous Laetrile treatments for cash to a cancer patient now deceased.

In August 2002, while at Lake Cable Medical Center, his medical practice in Canton, Ohio, Dr. Slingluff confirmed that he administered Laetrile treatments to his patients but required them to obtain their own Laetrile. FDA reviewed a paper entitled Laetrile Order Info which contained the name Betty Miller, a telephone number, and a company name of Healthy Options, and later a Laetrile package with a return address listing a post office box located in West Palm Beach, Florida.

In October 2002, U.S. Postal Service records were reviewed and it was determined that the post office box listed on the package was registered to Marilyn Norton in Florida.

On January 30, 2003, three federal search warrants were served for Dr. Slingluff's medical practice, Norton's business address, and Norton's residence. During the search at Norton's residence, she advised that she had been in business for approximately two years, that she was aware that Laetrile was used for the treatment of cancer and that she has been involved with Laetrile for approximately 30 years as her former husband, Steven Michaelis (deceased) also sold Laetrile. After the warrant, it was determined that Norton was the mother of Kenneth Michaelis who had been previously prosecuted. Kenneth Michaelis was convicted of two felony counts of distributing the unapproved new drugs Laetrile and Hydrazine Sulfate.

In March 2004, Dr. Slingluff was convicted of violating 21 U.S.C. §§ 331(d), 355(a) and 333(a)(1) - Interstate Distribution of an Unapproved New Drug. In May 2004, Dr. Slingluff was sentenced to serve 1 year supervised probation. In April 2005, Norton was convicted of violating 18 U.S.C. § 371 - Conspiracy; 21 U.S.C. §§ 331(p) and 333(a)(1) - Failure to Register a Drug Manufacturing Facility; and 21 U.S.C. §§ 331(a), 333(a)(1) and 352 - Introduction into Interstate Commerce of a Misbranded Drug. Norton was sentenced to serve 2 years supervised probation. (4)

The Ohio State Medical Board proposed to discipline Dr. Slingluff on the basis of the federal case. On 2004-12-13 Dr. Slingluff filed an appeal of the decision of the medical board in the Court of Common Pleas of Franklin County, Ohio. On 2005-08-04 the Court of Common Pleas of Franklin County upheld the decision of the medical board. Dr. Slingluff filed an appeal in the Court of Appeals of Ohio Tenth Appellate Division which likewise upheld the medical board in a decision handed down on 2006-07-11, whereupon he appealed this decision in the Supreme Court of Ohio. The court issued an entry order on 2006-12-13 in which it declined the hear the case. On 2008-12-10 Dr. Slingluff agreed to voluntarily surrender his medical license and consented to permanent revocation. (16)

** Robert Snider, M.D. The New York Board for Professional Medical Conduct restricted Dr. Snider's license and put him on probation for failure to meet acceptable standards of care in the case of seven patients. Among other things the board found that Dr. Snider fraudulently informed patients that DMPS may be prescribed by a physician under the Medical Practice Act of the United States, where there is no such act. Dr. Snider appears on a list of site investigators in research testing Dimercapto-propane sulfonate (DMPS) conducted by principal investigator Paula Bickle. The research was reviewed and approved by The Great Lakes College of Clinical Medicine Institutional Review Board. (6)

Vincent J. Speckhart, M.D. In 1993 the Virginia board prohibited Dr. Speckhart from using autologous vaccines in patients diagnosed with cancer outside of research overseen by an Institutional Review Board and subject to the approval of the board. The board also directed him to revise his consent form for an unapproved medical device and prohibited him from using the unapproved medical device outside of research. In 1995 the board placed Dr. Speckhart's medical license on indefinite probation and required his medical practice to be audited. The board found insufficient evidence to make a determination on allegations that Dr. Speckhart provided chelation therapy to a patient diagnosed with recurrent sclerosing nodular Hodgkin's disease who died a month later from renal failure and electrolyte imbalance secondary to progressive recurrent Hodgkin's disease. In 1998 the board was unable to substantiate matters complained of in the Notice of 1995-05-05, which alleged lapses in the appropriate conduct of research or violations of the previous board order. In 2003, while finding that care of one patient was not optimal, the board dismissed the matters complained of in the Notice of 2003-02-05. According to information provided to the board at that time, Dr. Speckhart retired from the active practice of clinical medicine in December, 2002.

John R. Toth, M.D. In April, 2005 the Kansas Board of Healing Arts reprimanded Dr. Toth for failure to timely respond to hospital pages. In June, 2005 the board issued an emergency suspension followed by an emergency order limiting Dr. Toth's practice. The situation arose after two patients treated with intravenous Bismacine were hospitalized with life-threatening complications. The first patient, whom Dr. Toth had treated for 11 years for Lyme disease, suffered kidney failure. The second patient's heart stopped beating in Dr. Toth's office. Two weeks later the board concluded that the first patient had been misdiagnosed, the bismuth product contained a toxic metal, and lacked FDA approval. The board issued an emergency order restricting Dr. Toth's practice. In December, 2005 Dr. Toth signed a consent agreement under which he inactivated his license and cannot resume practice unless he undergoes remedial education and petitions the board for reactivation. He also agreed that if permitted to resume practice, he will (a) do so in a group setting, (b) refrain from diagnosing or treating Lyme disease without prior approval by an infectious disease specialist, (c) refrain from prescribing intravenous bismuth to any patient, (d) use only methods that are generally accepted by the medical community.

** Richard L. Vander Heyden, DDS According to the Final Decision and Order issued by the Wisconsin Dentistry Examining Board on 2005-07-13:

… Dr. Vander Heyden testified at a deposition held on April 23, 2004 that, starting around 1991 through the late 1990s, he was a member of the Great Lakes Association of Clinical Medicine, a professional organization of medical practitioners. While a member of the Association, Dr. Vander Heyden heard about a study that the Association was conducting relating to the use of an EAV (Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll) device. The study was referred to as the Colquitt-Regianni study. Dr. Vander Heyden inquired about the study and at some point in time agreed to participate in conducting the study. He purchased an EAV device for use in the study from Esion, a company located in Utah, for about $28,000. The device was called Interro (Intero). Hearing Exhibit 6, p. 9-14.

Dr. Vander Heyden testified that his role in the Interro project conducted by Colquitt and Regianni was to gather data for the research. He used information that he obtained from his treatment of several of his patients from his dental practice, including Patients KP and BD, to gather data for the study. He charged his patients between $100 and $225 for the time that he spent doing the research. He compared the patients' response on the EAV testing to the results from the Clifford materials reactivity testing. He kept records of the testing and comparison and, at some point in time, turned the patients' records of the EAV results over to Great Lakes.
