For a scathing, 11-minute overview of the death of Dan Markingson at the University of Minnesota, and new allegations of coercion into psychiatric clinical trials, you can’t do much better than this excellent investigative report by Jeff Baillon.

INVESTIGATORS: Side-effects of drug study?

  1. Thanks so much for your efforts on this. Although there are few of us drawing attention to the corruption of medicine, I think we’re having an effect. My school requires completion of training on ethics through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI)for anyone submitting a study to the IRB. The last module of this training now includes material on corruption in drug studies. I’m sure those who aren’t familiar with the “scandal” won’t recognize the significance, but it’s a start.

    This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.

  3. Thank you Carl for bringing this to the light of day. It is a despicable example of the type of coercion, abuse, neglect, deception and killing that goes on in the U.S. “mental health” system every day. So many mis-steps went wrong on so many levels.
    We must STOP the lies. Thanks also to Jeff Baillon, Fox 9 investigative reporter
