The Johns Hopkins doctor who oversaw an asthma experiment in which a young woman died has warned colleagues across the country of the potential danger of giving other research subjects a chemical that might have caused her death. In a letter sent Friday to more than 100 asthma specialists, Dr. Solbert Permutt said the chemical was linked to several cases of respiratory failure in the 1950s, when the compound hexamethonium was used to treat high blood pressure. Although those patients took large doses over an extended period - in contrast to the Hopkins volunteer who inhaled a single dose - Permutt said he wanted to warn colleagues who might consider using the drug in future research.
