Massachusetts doctor accused of fraud by faking research

Associated Press, January 15, 2010
Federal prosecutors announced that they have filed a healthcare fraud charge against a doctor accused of faking research for a dozen years in published studies that suggested after-surgery benefits from painkillers. Court documents indicate that Scott Reuben, MD, an anesthesiologist, has agreed to plead guilty in exchange for prosecutors recommending a more lenient sentence. Prosecutors allege the former chief of acute pain at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA, sought and received research grants from pharmaceutical companies but never performed the studies.
