Cline loses two NIH grants.

Abstract

KIE:

To the surprise of some observers, the National Institutes of Health recently issued a second set of sanctions against Martin Cline for violating its regulations governing recombinant DNA research and human experimentation. Cline is the UCLA professor who prematurely conducted the first gene therapy experiments in humans in July 1980. Acting NIH director Thomas Malone accepted the recommendations of the advisory councils of the three institutes funding Cline: the Heart Institute terminated its grant to Cline; the Arthritis Institute decided to continue funding him for nonclinical research; and the Cancer Institute terminated one of Cline's two grants.
