Assembly Begins Probe Into State's Child Welfare System

"An earlier hearing in September focused the participation of several hundred New York City foster care children in clinical trials of drugs to treat HIV or AIDS in children. The lawmakers expressed concern over a June determination by federal investigators that New York City's ACS and Columbia University Medical Center failed to follow proper protocols when obtaining consent to participate in the tests. They also cited a public acknowledgement by ACS that 465 HIV-positive and AIDS-infected foster children received treatments not yet approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration as further evidence of serious failings in the agency's operation."
