RhoGAM Autism Suit Dismissed after Judge Bars Testimony of Dr. Mark Geier, 11/7/2006
RhoGAM Autism Suit Dismissed after Judge Bars Testimony of Dr. Mark Geier

Judge Bars Testimony of Dr. Mark Geier

Plaintiffs John and Jane Doe 2 ("Plaintiffs") have initiated this lawsuit based upon their contention that the thimerosal in Defendant Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc.'s ("Ortho-Clinical" or "Defendant") biologic product RhoGAM caused their child's autism. This matter is presently before the Court on three motions: Defendant's Motion to Exclude All Testimony that Thimerosal-Containing RhoGAM Causes Autism (Document #63), Defendant's Motion to Exclude Plaintiffs' Expert Suzanne Parisian, M.D. (Document #65), and relatedly, Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment (Document #94). The Court heard testimony concerning Defendant's motions to exclude witnesses for three days at the end of May 2006. Based upon the testimony at that hearing, the Court will grant Defendant's Motion to Exclude All Testimony that Thimerosal-Containing RhoGAM Causes Autism. More specifically, the focus of the Court's present Memorandum Opinion is the testimony of Plaintiffs' expert witness, Dr. Mark Geier. Dr. Geier was the only expert offered in this case by Plaintiffs who is designated to testify as to both general and specific causation. For the reasons given by the Court herein, Dr. Geier's testimony is specifically being excluded pursuant to Defendant's Motion to Exclude. As such, without Dr. Geier's testimony, Plaintiffs are unable to meet their burden to demonstrate that the thimerosal in Defendant's RhoGAM product caused Plaintiff Minor Child Doe 2' s autism, a result that leads directly to the failure of all of Plaintiffs' claims. Accordingly, for the reasons detailed below, the Court will also grant Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment.

Order of Special Master dismissing claim and criticizing plaintiff's expert Dr. Mark Geier (10/03)

Consumer Health Digest, June 24, 2010, 17/7/2014
Anti-vax lawsuit dismissed. A U.S. District Court judge has dismissed a Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD, Inc) lawsuit intended to force the FDA to suspend approval of all products that contain thimerosal. Thimerosal, a preservative that contains trivial amounts of mercury, has been falsely accused of causing autism and other neurological disorders. In 2008, the FDA dismissed a citizen petition filed by the same group after concluding that its contentions were legally and scientifically unsupportable by either law or science and that the currently marketed drug products that contain mercury preservatives are safe. The lawsuit claimed that (a) the FDA's denial injured CoMeD members by denying them the opportunity to be safely vaccinated, and (b) CoMeD members who received thimerosal-containing vaccines suffered harms that included autism, miscarriages, and other injuries. The judge concluded that the plaintiffs lacked standing to sue. CoMeD is a nonprofit group operated by Mark Geier, M.D. and his son David. Its mission is "to reduce the level of mercury in all drugs, and end the knowing addition of mercury, in any form, to vaccines and other drugs."

Mark Geier's license revoked. The Maryland State Board of Physicians has revoked the medical license of Mark R. Geier, M.D., Ph.D. The revocation order states that Geier had committed unprofessional conduct in his management of several patients. In some cases, he inappropriately diagnosed precocious puberty (a rare condition) and administered Lupron, a drug that reduces the body's production of the male hormone testosterone and is used to castrate sex offenders. In other cases, he administered inappropriate chelation therapy . The board noted:

More action against Dr. Mark Geier. Following hearings by an administrative law judge, the Maryland State Board of Physicians issued an order extending the suspension of Mark R. Geier, M.D. In April 2011, the Board of Physicians issued an emergency suspension order which stated Geier had misrepresented his credentials, operated an institutional review board that did not meet state and federal regulations, and rendered substandard care to nine patients with autism. In six of the patients, the board charged, he inappropriately diagnosed precocious puberty (a rare condition) and administered Lupron, a drug that reduces the body's production of the male hormone testosterone and is used to castrate sex offenders. Shortly afterward, following a hearing, the Board issued formal charges against Geier, continued his suspension, and also charged his son David with practicing medicine without a license. In November 2011, The administrative law judge dismissed the charges that Dr. Geier had misrepresented his credentials and improperly operated an institutional review board, but she found ample evidence of substandard care. Concluding that allowing Geier to continue to practice while formal charges are pending raised a "substantial likelihood of risk of serious harm to the public health, safety, or welfare," she recommended that the suspension should continue until the board rules on the formal charges. The Geiers had been operating ASD Centers LLC, a chain of clinics that advertises "a new combined genetic, biochemical, heavy metal, and hormonal evaluation/treatment for patients diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)."

Two more states suspend Mark Geier's license. The states of Virginia and Washington have suspended the medical license of Mark R. Geier, M.D. In April, the Maryland State Board of Physicians issued an emergency suspension order which stated Geier had misrepresented his credentials, operated an institutional review board that did not meet state and federal regulations, and rendered substandard care to nine patients with autism. In six of the patients, the board charged, he inappropriately diagnosed precocious puberty (a rare condition) and administered Lupron, a drug that reduces the body's production of the male hormone testosterone and is used to castrate sex offenders. Shortly afterward, following a hearing, the Board issued formal charges against him and also charged his son David Geier with practicing medicine without a license. Dr. Geier has appealed the Board's decision. Other states where Geier is licensed have taken no public action as yet. The Geiers have been operating ASD Centers LLC, a chain of clinics that advertises "a new combined genetic, biochemical, heavy metal, and hormonal evaluation/treatment for patients diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)." Quackwatch has received credible information that Geier is furnishing medical services through at least one of these clinics by interviewing parents via Skype, ordering tests, and prescribing treatment.

Anti-vax group crtiqued. Quackwatch has posted notes on the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD), a group "dedicated to reducing the mercury-exposure risks, for the unborn, infants, children, adolescents and adults, from all mercury-containing medical products to which they are, or may be, exposed." Founded and led mainly by Dr. Mark Geier and his son David Geier, CoMeD's main goal has been to to rid the marketplace of all vaccines that contain thimerosal, a preservative that contains trace amounts of mercury. In 2008, the FDA dismissed a CoMeD citizen petition after concluding that its contentions were legally and scientifically unsupportable by either law or science and that the drug products that still contained mercury preservatives were safe. CoMeD then sued, but a U.S. District Court judge concluded that the plaintiffs lacked standing to sue. CoMeD is appealing the dismissal, but there is no reason to think that its suit is winnable. Meanwhile, the Geiers are facing regulatory action by the Maryland Board of Medicine.

Book blasts anti-vaccination scaremongers. Autism's False Prophets exposes the opportunism of lawyers, journalists, celebrities, practitioners, politicians, and miscellaneous cranks who are promoting the myth that vaccines cause autism. Written by Paul A. Offit, M.D., co-developer of the rotavirus vaccine, the book chronicles the irresponsible behavior of Andrew Wakefield, M.D., Mark Geier, M.D., Geier's son David, Congressman Dan Burton, author David Kirby, former Playboy bunny Jenny McCarthy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and other misguided zealots and reveals how lawyers and "experts" involved in anti-vaccine lit∫igation have collected large amounts of government money. Offit also castigates Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, "Good Morning America," and other major news outlets for giving McCarthy widespread and undeserved exposure.

Dubious autism article retracted. The journal Autoimmunity Reviews has retracted a poorly reasoned article which claimed that mercury toxicity can cause autism and that the prescription drug Lupron may be useful in treating autistic children and adolescents. The article was written by Mark R. Geier, M.D., and his son David A. Geier, B.A., who have two patent applications pending for an autism treatment using Lupron. The retraction occurred after a blogger complained that the research described in the article violates internationally-accepted standards for the protection of human research subjects and that the authors had (a) insufficiently disclosed their conflicts of interest, (b) relied on suspect sources, (c) misrepresented the work of other authors, and (d) provided inadequate case documentation
