Italian judiciary abandons Stamina

Amid skepticism by the scientific community, the Italian Court were the main supporters of Stamina, a controversial experimental therapy protocol for neurodegenerative diseases introduces by Mr Davide Vannoni’s foundation.

In more than one case, the Courts ordered the Health Authorities to apply the protocol, but now their position looks completely different, with the Turin District Attorney’s Office charging Mr Vannoni and other people involved with a string of counts, including fraud.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, Mr Vannoni falsely claimed to be a University researcher and even hired fake nurses to impress the patients.

In Italy the District Attorney’s Offices are staffed with judges, thus being an integral part of the Court system. Their stances are usually influential in Court.
