Half of medical researchers don’t reveal conflict of interest with drug company image

Around half of medical researchers don’t reveal a conflict of interest with the pharmaceutical company whose drug they are assessing. This could be direct payments or some benefit in kind which might influence the outcome of the study, say researchers.

In fact, many of the researchers even denied any association to the drug company, say researchers from the American University of Beirut Medical Centre, who analysed previously-published medical trials, most of which were testing the effectiveness and safety of drugs.

As a conflict of interest could potentially influence the result, the researchers wanted to assess the prevalence of conflicts of interest, and whether they have been revealed.
