ABSTRACT
The article explores various issues concerning conflicts of interest in orthopaedics research. Financial conflict issues may occur when an investigator conducts research that is beneficial for a company in which the researcher has ownership interest. According to the findings of a study, corporate funding in orthopedic research is more likely to restrict investigators behavior and less likely to result in negative findings.
