Knowing doctor's financial interests doesn't deter clinical trial participants

Nearly 30 percent of respondents presented with this disclosure were unwilling to participate in the trial, as compared to 25 percent of respondents presented with a generic disclosure, and 20 percent of those who were told the investigator received payments from industry to cover the cost of running the study.

One-third of the respondents said the financial disclosures made them less trusting of the researcher or the institution, but further studies will be needed to really tease out the implications of this.

It is essential that clinical research is a trustworthy endeavor, so we need to think carefully about the implications of these findings, said Jeremy Sugarman, M.D., a professor of bioethics and medicine at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and senior author of the study.

The relationships between researchers and industry are becoming more complex, Weinfurt said, leading to greater interest and visibility for this issue as it relates to patients.

The Department of Health and Human Services, among other organizations, has issued a call to the scientific and medical communities to consider whether disclosing financial relationships between investigators and industry during the consent process would help protect the rights and welfare of patients.
