FDA: HCMC doctors kept ketamine study going after pledging to stop


Tom Wallace – Star Tribune

Inspectors from the Food and Drug Administration visited HCMC 17 times in April as part of an investigation into the hospital's sedative research.

Medical staff at HCMC continued to sedate people with ketamine and collect data for a study for months after the hospital's leadership told elected officials they had voluntarily halted the research in response to questions over ethics and patient safety.

New inspection reports from federal regulators also say that doctors involved in the research failed to disclose incidents of patients suffering serious medical complications - such as trouble breathing or high blood pressure - to the committee in charge of keeping study subjects safe.
