Doctors urge limits on drug firm money
A group of leading doctors and researchers called on medical associations to sharply limit the funding they receive from the drug and device companies. The new proposals, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, call for associations to refuse general budget support from industry. The recommendations, which aren't binding, would allow the groups to continue to accept industry advertising in medical journals and payments for industry-sponsored booths at doctors' conferences.
