Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Committee on Finance, made the following comment
today after his committee investigators interviewed two former executives of SFBC International
Inc., a pharmaceutical research company that the committee is reviewing for allegations of unethical
treatment of patients. Grassley’s investigators met separately in his office today with Lisa Krinsky,
who recently resigned as president and chairman, and Gerald Seifer, former director of legal affairs.
Grassley made the following comment on the meetings.
“My investigators interviewed Ms. Krinsky and Mr. Seifer, who appeared voluntarily today
in response to my request. My staff informed me that they cooperated fully and that the interviews
were productive. The findings of the report that the company’s lawyers provided to the committee,
including ‘inappropriate’ behavior, and allegations related to the ethical treatment of patients in
clinical trials were discussed. The Committee will continue reviewing the company’s practices and
activities as the SEC’s investigation continues.”
