American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and North American Menopause Society Fail to Disclose Financial Ties to Wyeth Pharmaceuticals

Organizations Support Wyeth Campaign to Eliminate Compounded Hormones

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) today called on the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) to fully disclose their financial ties to Wyeth when dispensing advice to patients and practitioners that directly benefits the pharmaceutical giant. In recent weeks, AACE, NAMS and other supposedly independent women's health organizations have voiced public support for Wyeth's campaign to restrict women's access to compounded, bio-identical hormones.

North American Menopause Society (NAMS)

Wyeth endows a $200,000 lectureship fund named for Dr. Utian and was named a "Partner in Menopause Education" (requiring a contribution of at least $8,000) for the NAMS' 2007 Annual Meeting. Additionally, half of NAMS's Board of Trustees for 2007-2008 re
