Review finds conflicts of interest in many cancer studies
Date:5/10/2009

Conflicts of interest were most often found in articles with primary authors from departments in medical oncology (45 percent), those from North America (33 percent), and those with male first and senior authors (37 percent).

According to the authors, randomized clinical trials that assessed patient survival were more likely to report a survival advantage associated with the intervention when a conflict of interest was present. These trials are the foundation by which drugs, technologies, diagnostic tests, etc. get approved for use in the clinic and therefore shape the way oncologists practice medicine.

The findings also show that studies with industry funding were more likely to focus on treatment than studies without industry funding (62 percent vs. 36 percent). They were less likely than studies not declaring industry funding to focus on epidemiology, prevention, risk factors, screening or diagnostic methods (20 percent vs. 47 percent).

This analysis revealed that conflicts of interest exist in a considerable number of clinical cancer research articles published in important journals. The authors noted that "attempts to disentangle the cancer research effort from industry merit further attention, and journals should embrace both rigorous standards of disclosure and heightened scrutiny when conflicts exist."
