The article focuses on the issue of the influence of biomedical industrial sponsorship on medical literature. In order to bring a new drug onto the market clinical trials are conducted. These trials take place in clinics in both university and nonuniversity institutions and, for the most part, are sponsored by the pharmaceutical and biomedical industry. There is increasing evidence that the interpretation of data from sponsored studies may be biased.
