The American College of Cardiology Board of Trustees said today that it would bar Martin Leon, M.D. of Columbia University from participation "as a presenter, reviewer, or panelist" at its 2008 meeting. The sanction, which was recommended by the ACC's ethics committee, was a response to Dr. Leon's premature disclosure of the embargoed findings of the COURAGE trial, which led to the "consequent premature lifting of the embargo".
