Consumer Health Digest #08-20
May 13, 2008

Consumer Health Digest is a free weekly e-mail newsletter edited by
Stephen Barrett, M.D., and cosponsored by NCAHF and Quackwatch. It
summarizes scientific reports; legislative developments; enforcement
actions; news reports; Web site evaluations; recommended and
nonrecommended books; and other information relevant to consumer
protection and consumer decision-making.


NIH chelation research project blasted.

Medscape General Medicine has published a book-length report that
calls for immediate termination of the National Institutes of
Health's ongoing study of chelation therapy. [Atwood KA and others.
Why the NIH Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT) should be
abandoned. Medscape Journal of Medicine 10(5):115, 2008]
The $30 million clinical trial, which began in 2003 and is scheduled
for completion in 2009, is intended to test whether intravenous
disodium EDTA is effective against coronary artery disease.

The report concludes:

**There is no reliable preliminary evidence or logical reason to
believe that the treatment will work.

**Chelation proponents used political connections to pressure the NIH
to fund the study.

**The application for the trial misrepresented previous data and
concealed evidence of risks.

**The study lacks precautions necessary to minimize risks.

**The consent form reflects these shortcomings and fails to disclose
apparent proprietary interests.

**Many of the doctors administering the chelation therapy have been
in regulatory trouble and are untrustworthy.

**The trial's outcome will be unreliable and almost certainly
equivocal, thus defeating the study's stated purpose.


Chelation therapy provider under investigation.

The Orlando Sentinel has reported that investigators from the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services raided and searched the
offices of Robert J. Rogers, M.D., who operates Advanced Medical
Practices in Longwood, Florida. The probe was said to involve
billings for chelation therapy and other "alternative" practices.

FTC curbs "smoking cessation" patch promotion.

The U.S. Federal Trade commission has charged Kenneth Chan and Albert
Chen and their companies (NextClick Media, LLC and Next Internet,
LLC) with improper billing and making unsubstantiated claims for
herbal "smoking cessation" patches. The products include Nicocure,
Stop Smoking 180, and Zero Nicotine. All three products were claimed
to be more effective than nicotine-based products. Nicocure and Stop
Smoking 180 were claimed to have a 97% effectiveness rate and to
enable smokers to quit permanently. According to the FTC, the
defendants offered "free trials" of the products but made
unauthorized shipments and debited buyers' bank accounts without
authorization. The defendants have agreed to a stipulated injunction
that bars them from continuing the challenged practices. ["Free
trial" smoking cessation patch promoter halts deceptive practices;
Trials weren't free, patches didn't work as claimed. FTC news
release, May 7, 2008]
The Better Business Bureau, which has received more than 100
complaints, has given NextClick Media an unsatisfactory rating.
