Fewer U.S. Docs Accepting Perks From Industry: Survey
Date:11/8/2010

MONDAY, Nov. 8 (HealthDay News) -- U.S. physicians' links with drug makers, medical device manufacturers and other health-related companies have decreased since 2004, but many doctors still have ties to these businesses, new research shows.

A 2004 survey found that about four out of five doctors accepted gifts of food and beverages from industry in their workplaces and more than 75 percent were given drug samples.

"On every measure, the percentage of physicians with industry relationships was significantly lower in 2009 than in 2004," Eric G. Campbell, of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and colleagues wrote in a news release from the journal's publisher.

Certain types of specialists were more likely to have industry ties. For example, these connections were more common among cardiologists (92.8 percent) than psychiatrists (79.8 percent). The type of practice also made a difference.

"Physicians in solo or two-person practices and group practices were significantly more likely than those in hospital and medical school settings to receive samples, reimbursements and gifts. However, physicians in medical schools were most likely to receive payments from industry," the researchers wrote.

"These data clearly show that physici
