Parker Waichman LLP Comments on Pending Debut of ‘Sunshine Act,’ Which Will Focus on Cases of Allegedly Fraudulent Financial Links Between Doctors and Manufacturers
Date:7/17/2013

Committee release.

The Finance Committee had also found problems with most of the initial Medtronic-supported Infuse research, as noted in an Oct. 25, 2012, Bloomberg Businessweek report. The article noted that doctors and researchers had authored at least 11 medical journal reports about Infuse for their multimillion-dollar payment, which was in the form of royalties and consulting fees. Senate investigators also charged that Medtronic deliberately manipulated studies to mitigate any adverse reactions to Infuse side effects, as well as to promote off-label use.

“Ultimately, the public deserves accurate information regarding the benefits and risks associated with any medication or medical device they are considering putting inside their bodies,” said Gary Falkowitz, Managing Attorney from Parker Waichman LLP. “Examples like the Senate’s investigation into the Infuse product show the potential value of the Sunshine Act.”
