Dear Mr. Apodaca:
On October 31, 1974 I sent to you a scientific paper with photographs and slides
on the harmful effects of liquid silicone injected into the human body.
I then asked you to please review the paper
and the slides and send them to Mr. Harry E. Butts, HFX-100 Division of Compliance, Bureau of Medical Devices and Diagnostic
Products, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852. As of this date, I have not heard from you nor from Mr. Harry Butts.
think that I might expect the courtesy of a response as well as return of my work.
Since that date I have collected
further information on the transgression of liquid silicone particles through the gel-filled prosthetic shell into surrounding
tissues and some of my observations have been confirmed by a Doctor Shamel who is a
scientific worker at the University
of Zurixh, Switzerland.
I am amazed that no action has been taken, nationwide, against the injection of liquid silicone
and I am also amazed that you have not taken a closer look at the possible dangerous effects of the liquid silicone portions
of the gel transgressing through the shell and then being absorbed into the human body.
