False Medical Research Alleged

Springfield,MA, anesthesiologist Scott Reuben has been accused of fabricating as many as 21 published articles over 13 years. His research has been widely used to determine pain management treatment for surgery patients. Dr. Brian O’sullivan — at UMASS Medical School in Worcseter and chair of the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects — told WFCR’s Susan Kaplan that institutions basically have no choice but to assume medical researchers are telling the truth.
