Inhaltsangabe: Chairman Mao Tse-Tung, leader of the Chinese Party, in his own little red book, said that true political power comes from the muzzle of a gun. George Cotzias, the son af a Greek politician, proved it can come from the mouth of a medicine bottle.
George Cotzias, Greek born and Harvard educated was a man driven by his own ego, but he deserved his hard earned recognition. Like so many perfectionists, his discoveries were not made without personal cost. Quia Imperfectum details the true events, bitter politics and consequences of unexpected results involved in research medicine.
Today, the most accepted treatment for Parkinson's Disease is still L-DOPA. The discovery was made by a talented team of researchers during the Nixon Administration, a time when atomic energy seemed to be the answer to everything. The group at Brookhaven was under intense political pressure to improve Sino American relations by providing Chairman Mao, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, with treatment for his own Parkinson's Disease, even before the rest of the world even knew there was possible help available.
Vom Verlag: Quia Imperfectum reveals the exciting details of the team’s race for the Nobel Prize, the fierce political infighting of the scientific community, and that there was nothing our own government won’t do to maintain its edge during the cold war, including providing expensive secret treatments to our enemies. The current growing political tensions with China make this story all the more relevant. The story has been novelized to protect the guilty, and is not considered a medical textbook by any means. Bernard’s screenplay adapted from the text won first place from the 2001 Houston Writers League.
