Analysis of deaths on Matthias Rath illegal clinical trial

Summary

  • Analysis of five deaths of patients on Rath's trial
    • For three of these patients Rath is at a minimum responsible for contributing to their deaths.
       
    • For the other two, Rath is at a minimum responsible for misleading them and creating false hope.
  • Several other deaths on Rath's trial have been reported, but we only discuss here ones which we have investigated.
  • Minister of Health has responsibility for failing to stop Rath.
  • Rath's pseudo-science in conjunction with other pseudo-scientific practices throughout South Africa is causing confusion and costing many lives. This pseudo-science flourishes because it is  perceived to be endorsed by the Minister of Health and President Mbeki.
     

Matthias Rath is a pharmaceutical proprietor who claims that micronutrients alone treat AIDS. He claims that antiretrovirals, the treatments recognised by every competent medical authority for treating HIV/AIDS, are toxic and make AIDS worse. He makes similar claims for heart-disease, cancer, diabetes and other diseases.
