Medical schools quizzed on ghostwriting

New York Times, November 18, 2009
Senator Charles E. Grassley wrote to 10 top medical schools to ask what they are doing about professors who put their names on ghostwritten articles in medical journals and why that practice was any different from plagiarism by students. Grassley said ghostwriting had hurt patients and raised costs for taxpayers because it used prestigious academic names to promote medical products and treatments that might be expensive or less effective than viable alternatives, reports the New York Times.
