California board accuses octuplets doctor of negligence

Los Angeles Times, January 5, 2010

The Medical Board of California has accused a Beverly Hills fertility doctor of a pattern of gross negligence that led to the birth of Nadya Suleman's 14 children, including the world's longest-surviving octuplets, and created a "stockpile" of unused frozen embryos which serve "no clinical purpose," the Los Angeles Times reports. Michael Kamrava, MD, transferred an excessive number of embryos—a number beyond what is considered acceptable by fertility standards—on six occasions, according to the accusation.
