Researchers’ Views of the Acceptability of Restrictive Provisions in Clinical Trial Agreements with Industry Sponsors
TLDR
There was substantial variation among clinical researchers in their acceptability judgments, with a relatively large proportion of clinical trial investigators willing to accept provisions in contracts for industry-sponsored clinical trials that give industry sponsors considerable control over the dissemination of research results. Expand
A national survey of provisions in clinical-trial agreements between medical schools and industry sponsors.
TLDR
Academic institutions routinely engage in industry-sponsored research that fails to adhere to ICMJE guidelines regarding trial design, access to data, and publication rights, and suggest that a reevaluation of the process of contracting for clinical research is urgently needed. Expand
