A doctor conducting unproven MS treatments might lose his license.
The California medical board has begun possible license revocation proceedings against a doctor who was the subject of a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel/MedPage Today investigation.
Michael Arata, of Newport Beach, is one of a small group of doctors who performed a risky, unproven vein-opening procedure on desperate patients with multiple sclerosis, often charging thousands of dollars up front.
The March story noted that between 2012 and 2017 Arata got three letters from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warning of objectionable conditions and “repeatedly and/or deliberately” violating federal laws governing clinical research.
One woman died after Arata performed the procedure on her, according to her husband who said she bought into the promise after seeing posters advertising a presentation by Arata at a hotel convention hall in Canada.
