Airlines Accused of Hindering Key Blood Clot Study

Airlines Accused of Hindering Key Blood Clot Study

Airlines are dragging their feet in co-operating with a study on whether so-called economy class syndrome, which causes potentially deadly blood clots, is linked to flying, a leading researcher told Reuters Wednesday.

One of the scientists in charge of the investigation conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) said that the carriers' slowness had hindered his team's research.

"The airlines' defensive reaction is counterproductive," the scientist, Frits Rosendaal, said. An international airline lobby group denied the accusation.

The investigation seeks to prove whether or not the potentially deadly syndrome, known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), is related to flying and is crucial to airlines and victims battling each other in courts around the world.
