Краткое описание

Objective. To describe the key contributions of Dr. Joseph K. McLaughlin, Outstanding Scientist of 2004. Methods. We review the scientific literature and indicate how epidemiologic research conducted by Dr. McLaughlin has clarified long-term health effects among persons with breast and other medical implants. Results. Dr. Joseph K. McLaughlin has conducted and directed more research into the long-term effects of human implants than any other scientist worldwide. His insights greatly elucidated the long-term health consequences associated with a variety of implanted devices, including silicone and saline breast implants, hip and knee replacements, temporomandibular and finger joint devices, and pacemakers. By initiating and bringing to fruition a series of innovative epidemiologic investigations, Dr. McLaughlin and his colleagues have provided the scientific basis for making judgments about alleged adverse health effects following cosmetic, reconstructive, and reparative implant surgery. Conclusions. Dr. McLaughlin's seminal investigations have provided reassurance that breast and other implants have not demonstrably increased the risk of cancer or other systemic diseases. The comprehensive and rigorous nature of this research merits his selection as Outstanding Scientist of 2004.
