Millennium Laboratories Announces Laboratory Responsibility Pledge
Date:3/21/2012

professional, the practice or the patient at risk
  • substantiating claims with valid science and never falsely promoting our products or services 
  • "These principles should already constitute standard operating procedure for every laboratory in this industry," said Appel. "Unfortunately, they are often disregarded by other laboratories in the pursuit of profit.  As a result, physician practices are put at risk, patient care may be compromised, heath care dollars are wasted, and the industry as a whole is undervalued. Our industry should not – and Millennium will not – idly stand by while these actions continue."

    A key component of the Pledge is the adoption of clinical laboratories guidelines to be established by an upcoming stakeholder summit comprised of leading pain and physician associations, regulators and other stakeholders. The summit will be chaired by Dr. Richard Payne, Professor of Medicine and Divinity at Duke University, a highly-respected expert in pain, palliative care and bioethics, who also served as past chair of the American Pain Society.

    "The Clinical Laboratory Responsibility Pledge announced by Millennium puts forth excellent examples of ethical initiatives that can lead the medication monitoring industry to a higher level of integrity in business practices and patient care," said Richard Payne, MD.  "I look forward to convening the stakeholders working group as soon as practicable with the purpose of delineating and disseminating an ethical code of conduct broadly accepted by the range of national pain societies; increasing awareness of expected laboratory conduct among physicians and other prescribers, and dramatically reducing the number of unethical practices by those companies seeking an unfair advantage."

    The Clinical Laboratory Responsibility Pledge and Millennium's Commitment to Compliance policy are publicly available on the company website at
