Fertility doc says Octomom agreed to be "human guinea pig" in study
London, Nov 20 (ANI): The fertility expert who implanted 12 embryos into 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman has said that she agreed to be the "human guinea pig" as part of a fertility study.
Dr Michael Kamrava said Suleman, 35, volunteered for the procedure and signed a consent form listing the risks.
Suleman, a divorced single mother of 14, became an overnight global star in January 2009 when she gave birth to eight babies, becoming only the second woman to do so in America.
Following the birth of the babies, now the world's longest-surviving set of octuplets, Dr Kamrava was accused of negligence in his treatment of Suleman.
Giving evidence at the hearing of the Medical Board of California, Dr Kamrava denied suggestions that Suleman did not know she was a test subject in the study.
"She heard about it, we discussed it with her and she volunteered," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
Deputy Attorney General Judith Alvarado asked the doctor where Suleman had signed to say she's a volunteer to be tested as a human guinea pig.
The doctor responded that Suleman had signed a consent form listing the risks of the procedure.
Dr Kamrava faces losing his medical license if allegations of gross negligence are proved in his treatment of Suleman and two other patients. (ANI)
