This is one of a series of letters sent to executives and medical professionals working for the Physicians Committee for Responsible, a high-profile Washington DC nonprofit with growing political influence. These include PCRM forunder/president Neal Barnard MD, medical advisory board member Andrew Weil MD, public affairs director Elizabeth Kucinich (wife of Rep. Dennis Kucinich), and senior medical & research advisor, John J. Pippin MD. All have failed to respond to answer reasonable questions based on claims made by themselves or by their organization: http://bit.ly/bzyiHs

April 28, 2010John J. Pippin MDSenior Medical and Research AdvisorPhysicians Committee for Responsible Medicine5100 Wisconsin Ave., N.W., Ste. 400Washington, DC 20016
 
Dear Dr. Pippin,I'm reporting a story regarding your organization's relationship with Dr. Henry J. Heimlich - amember of PCRM's medical advisory board since approximately 1986 - and the issues raised inthis April 8, 2010 LA Weekly article:
In both its mission statement and its IRS filings, the Washington, D.C.–based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) says it is "strongly opposed to unethical human research." But the group is throwing a private Hollywood Art of Compassion bash Sunday night to hand out a major award named after Dr. Henry Heimlich, who has been condemned by mainstream medical organizations around the world for his 20-year program of trying to cure cancer and AIDS by injecting people with malaria-infected blood.
 
According to your organization's website, you have expertise in the field of human subjectsresearch and "served as an invited speaker and panelist for the NIH National Human SubjectsProtection Workshop." Therefore, I'd appreciate your answers to some quick questions.According to the following articles, the Heimlich "malariotherapy" experiments have beencondemned by the World Health Organization, the US Centers for Disease Control andPrevention, the US Food and Drug Administration, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. PeterLurie of Public Citizen, and others.http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/extract/340/mar11_2/c1314 http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2007/06/dr_heimlichs_ne.html http://www.enquirer.com/editions/2003/02/16/loc_heimlich16.htmlhttp://www.cnn.com/2003/HEALTH/conditions/04/14/health.aids.malaria.reut/index.htmlhttp://articles.latimes.com/1994-10-30/news/mn-56686_1_heimlich-maneuverAccording tothis Radar Magazine article, in 2005 the Heimlich Institute employed a Bay Area carrental agent to supervise "malariotherapy" experiments on sex workers in Ethiopia.Ina March 5, 2008 video interview, my colleague Justin Jeffre asked Dr. Heimlich about thestatus of his "malariotherapy" experiments. Dr. Heimlich replied,
"We just had an extensive meeting. And it’s starting in a new country…we’re using it" 
:Here are my questions.1) When did you first become aware of the Heimlich "malariotherapy" experiments?2) Do you see any contradiction regarding PCRM's mission statement claim of being"strongly opposed to unethical human research" and your organization's relationship with Dr.Heimlich?3) Does your organization have any interest in investigating Dr. Heimlich's most recent"malariotherapy" experiments such as determining in which country he is planning to conductthem?
