Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel M.D.
October 2008: "Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, one of the study’s authors, said doctors should not prescribe antibiotics or sedatives as placebos, given those drugs’ risks. Use of less active placebos is understandable, he said, since risks are low....“Everyone comes out happy: the doctor is happy, the patient is happy,” said Dr. Emanuel, chairman of the bioethics department at the health institutes."http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/24/health/24placebo.html
July 2007: Debate now rages over where to draw the line on this brand of self-defense. Some would keep it just where it is. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, an oncologist and chair of clinical bioethics at the NIH's Warren G. Magnusen Clinical Center, wrote in The New Republic last July that the D.C. Circuit Court's initial decision would send us 'back to the snake-oil days.' And a right to experimental drugs could undermine the whole drug-evaluation system: Why join a clinical trial if you could bypass it?http://www.boston.com/news/globe/ideas/articles/2007/07/01/why_cant_you_buy_a_kidney_to_save_your_life?rss_id=Boston+Globe+--+Ideas+Section
February 2005: '"Even my secretary is going to have to sell her stock. How much sense does that make?" fumed Ezekiel Emanuel, chairman of the agency's department of clinical bioethics.'http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A58845-2005Feb2.html
