Health Ministry shuts down former Hadassah oncologist’s private Tel Aviv clinic

January 17, 2016 22:10

The International Center for Cellular Medicine and Cancer Immunotherapy – a private medical institution in Tel Aviv’s Palace Tower run by the former “stem-cell wonder” at Hadassah- University Medical Center Prof. Shimon Slavin – has been ordered shut down by the Health Ministry.

The ministry’s Tel Aviv District health officer, Dr. Rivka Sheffer, wrote to Slavin with copies to the Israel Police, the ministry’s director-general, its legal adviser and other officials, that what was going on in Slavin’s clinic “was not for the good of the health of patients there.”

Sheffer reported that between March and December 2015, seven patients who had undergone special bone-marrow transplants for cancer at Slavin’s clinic had suffered complications – some of them life threatening – and were hospitalized at Hadassah in Ein Kerem.
