Recent studies show Australian medical researchers receive large sums of money from Big Pharma which are not always declared.

In the last year payments just over $11.5 million were paid to Australian Researchers which currently relies on an HONOUR SYSTEM.

Studies show one in four Australian Medical researchers are failing to declare important conflict of interest in medical trials, yet science continues to rely on the system without consequence.

The Sydney University-led study concluded these payments are not declared when they should be, and the findings show an urgent need for strict regulation to ensure complete transparency.

Within 120 clinical trials it was found that in almost half of the trials there were undeclared conflicts of interest. With undeclared payments between $9000 and $97,600.

A statement by co-lead author Associate Professor Barbara Mintzes from the University of Sydney’s School of Pharmacy said.

“This is not an issue of weeding out a few bad apples,”

“Based on our findings, the issue of incomplete and inaccurate disclosure is widespread.”

Dr Ray Moynihan, Bond University researcher, stated, “Food and drink payments don’t need to be disclosed. And so, all that wining and dining is essentially happening in secret.”

“Disclosures are crucial to keeping research transparent. It is vital because pharma industry funding is associated with a bias towards study results that are more favourable towards the tested drug,” she said.

The researchers cross-checked drug company payments made to researchers, available on the Medicines Australia database, with the authors’ self-reported conflicts.

It found that of 323 Australian authors listed in the trials, one quarter had at least one “missing or incomplete conflict of interest declaration”.

Within all research it is imperative that ALL payments received from pharmaceutical companies MUST be declared to eliminate any options for corruption or abuse by any parties.
