Three Indian-American doctors based within the us (US) are caught for fake coronavirus research. Dr. Amit N Patel, Dr. Sapan Desai, and Dr. Mandeep Mehra are at the middle of a medical research scandal, raising questions of ethics and conflict of interest.
One of the three doctors, Dr. Mehra has tendered an unconditional apology and confessed the wrongdoing. He has confessed that he had written or lent his name as a lead investigator to many research papers without accessing the info supplied by Desai. Patel too has distanced himself from Desai, who also happens to be his brother-in-law, National Herald reported.
However, the pattern was an equivalent . Desai’s firm Surgisphere, located in a rich residential district outside Chicago, had supplied the info supported which the trio allegedly drew their conclusions. Both Patel and Mehra claimed to be lead investigators with access to the info which they claimed to possess analyzed (but didn’t).
The doctors remained involved in publishing their so-called findings during a well-celebrated medical journal. They were recommending and prohibiting the utilization of certain medicines for the treatment of coronavirus.
Moreover, a study by the trio was also among those that claimed that the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine may be a magic cure for COVID-19. India sent an outsized amount of drugs to the US at the request folks President Trump. However, it had been actually not effective and had led to higher mortality among patients.
