ABSTRACT
This article presents issues on how drug companies can corrupt medical research and education. It notes that drug companies do research by contracting some research organizations, who are organizing doctors in private practice, to enroll their patients in clinical trials to increase their chances of getting their research published, and more importantly providing access to highly influential faculty physicians. Drug companies often contract with academic researchers to carry out studies for almost entirely commercial purposes. Drug companies also influence biases on the research itself by distorting the research agenda.
