Rethinking Research Ethics: Carnegie Mellon and McGill Researchers Challenge Post-marketing Trial Practices

Current review systems at drug regulatory agencies like the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) or at universities have little authority to police post-marketing trials for bias. To correct the problem, London and Kimmelman, who frequently collaborate on ways to improve clinical research, point to several policy options, including expanding the review authority of the FDA, academic medical centers and medical journals.

"Rigorously designed and executed research has a critical role in improving patient care and restraining ballooning health care costs," said Kimmelman, associate professor of biomedical ethics at McGill. "There is currently a push to streamline the ethical review of research.  In this process, oversight systems should be empowered to separate scientific wheat from marketing chaff."

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research funded this research.
