Rockefeller, Johns Hopkins Behind Horrific Human Syphilis Experiments, Allege Guatemalan Victims in Lawsuit

Over 750 victims have sued The Rockefeller Foundation, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Johns Hopkins University, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation, alleging that they were the driving force behind human experiments in which vulnerable populations of Guatemalans were deceived and intentionally exposed to syphilis, gonorrhea and other venereal diseases and pathogens, without giving any informed consent. The experiments targeted school children, orphans, psychiatric hospital patients, prison inmates and military conscripts. The Obama Administration apologized to Guatemala for the Guatemala Experiments in 2010. The Administration tasked the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues to investigate the experiments. The details of the experiments were deliberately hidden from the world, and remained so until the Commission published its report in September 2011, confirming that barbaric human experiments constituting human rights violations occurred, for example: prostitutes were infected with venereal disease and then provided for sex to subjects for intentional transmission of the disease; subjects were inoculated by injection of syphilis spirochetes into the spinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, under the skin, and on mucous membranes; an emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea was spread under the foreskin of the penis in male subjects; the penis of male subjects was scraped or scarified and then coated with the emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea; a woman from the psychiatric hospital was injected with syphilis, developed skin lesions and wasting, and then had gonorrheal pus from a male subject injected into both of her eyes. Many of the Guatemalans developed venereal disease. Most were never treated. Researchers subjected the Guatemalans to repeated blood draws, lumbar punctures and cisternal punctures of the suboccipital portion of the brain, gynecological examinations, touching and penetration of sexual organs, and forced or coerced sexual contact. Key Rockefeller and Johns Hopkins researchers involved in the Guatemala Experiments, were also behind the now infamous Tuskegee experiments, in which 600 impoverished African-American sharecroppers were never informed they had syphilis, and were given placebos rather than real medicine. The researchers watched while the experiment subjects wasted away and infected their wives and children with the disease. The Tuskegee experiments were halted after being exposed by a whistleblower. The Guatemala victims have also sued Bristol-Myers Squibb, which supplied penicillin necessary for the Guatemala Experiments. The case has been filed in the Circuit Court in Baltimore City, Maryland. The victims are represented by three law firms: Meridian 361 International Law Group, PLLC of Portland, Maine; Escritorio Juridico Rodriguez Fajardo y Asociados of Caracas, Republica Bolivariana de Venezuela; and Salsbury, Clements, Bekman, Marder & Adkins of Baltimore, Maryland.

The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation Announces Management Changes

Stuart Erdman, whose career as a finance leader at The Johns Hopkins Health System spans more than 32 years, has announced plans to retire at the end of 2013. Erdman is assistant treasurer and senior director of finance for the health system, where he oversees capital financing, cash management and compliance with Medicare and Medicaid reporting requirements. In addition to his finance leadership at Johns Hopkins, Erdman has served as president of the Healthcare Financial Management Association and as board chairman of the Helping Up Mission (HUM). After he retires on Dec. 31, 2013, Erdman will continue to be a resource to Johns Hopkins leaders on a limited basis to provide financial advice on capital planning, debt financing and rate regulation issues. Erdman's operational responsibilities will be assumed by Tom Trzcinski, director of treasury services, and Ed Beranek, director of regulatory compliance. Both will become senior directors. Beranek is responsible for the hospital system's revenue budget and all regulatory matters involving the HSCRC. He represents the health system on several Maryland Hospital Association work groups and task forces of the HSCRC. Over the course of his 20-plus years in health care, Beranek has served in various analyst and managerial roles, both in the hospital setting as well as in consulting. Trzcinski currently serves as a member of the Investment Committee of the United Way of Central Maryland and is on the board of directors of numerous local foundations.
