3) Re: the “thorough and exhaustive” 2002/2003 investigation, my May 6 letter provided you with126 pages of records available to the university at the time. Those records included
correspondence about the China experiments exchanged by these UCLA employees: John L.Fahey MD, Evelyn G. Najera MPH, Najib Aziz MD, and Deborah Mathieson. A. I'm aware that Dr. Fahey was interviewed for the 2002/2003 investigation. What were thedates Ms. Najera, Dr. Aziz, and Ms. Mathieson were interviewed and who interviewed them?B. Was anyone else interviewed? If so, what are their names, on what dates were they interviewed,and who interviewed them?4)
Dr. Fahey retired from the University in 2008 and no longer lives in thestate. The University no longer has any jurisdiction over Dr. Fahey or theother parties referenced in your letter.
A. Has Dr. Fahey -- click here for his web page on UCLA's website -- had any relationship with the
university since his 2008 retirement? If so, would you please provide details?B. You were provided with numerous documents including UCLA correspondence that discuss theparticipation of Najib Aziz MD in the research. According to UCLA's website,Dr. Aziz is manager
and technical specialist of the university's Clinical & Translational Research Laboratory. And viathe May 6 UCLA
: Aziz said he was not aware of (my May 6 letter to you) and declined to comment on it, butsaid he was not as involved in the research as Fahey.Do you wish to revise your statement?5)
It is regrettable that the Heimlich Institute and Dr. Heimlich continue toexaggerate UCLA's involvement in malariatherapy research.
by Lindsay Abrams,
, March 11, 2013 (emphasis added):"Malariotherapy is a proven treatment and was used to eliminate neurosyphilis before theadvent of antibiotics," wrote Heimlich in an email to
maintaining thathis trials in China were...aided by UCLA.
I sent a March 27, 2013 e-mail to UCLA spokesman Phil Hampton asking if the above claim wasaccurate.In a next-day response, he directed me to a December 2, 2002 letter sent to Dr. Heimlich (my father) by UCLA Campus Counsel Patricia Jasper in which she wrote:On behalf of the University of California, Los Angeles, I am writing to request that yourorganization, the Heimlich Institute, immediately cease and desist any use of any nameassociated with The Regents of the University of California, including, without limitation,"UCLA," directly or indirectly in connection or association with any reports orpublications relating to malariotherapy or any other research or treatment conducted oroffered by the Heimlich Institute. Any such uses constitute mischaractizations and areunauthorized. You may be unaware that section 92000 of the Education Code of the State of Californiamakes unauthorized use of any name belonging to The Regents a misdemeanor. Additionally, on behalf of Dr. John L. Fahey, a member of the UCLA faculty, I requestthat you immediately cease and desist any use of Dr. Fahey's name in connection with any reports or publications relating to malariotherapy or any other research or treatmentconducted or offered by the Heimlich Institute. Dr. Fahey has informed me that he hasnever participated in any Heimlich Institute research and that the use of his name,directly or indirectly, in connection with any such research is a misrepresentation.
