    Drug researchers often do NOT have access to their own data in drug-company-sponsored studies

    Researchers who do drug studies that are paid for by the drug companies often do NOT have access to the data from their own trials notes John Abramson, MD from Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, author of the book Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine. How The Pharmaceutical Companies Are Corrupting Science, Misleading Doctors, And Threatening Your Health.

    “However, the drug companies typically retain control over the data from their sponsored trials so the majority of the researchers don’t have open access to the results from their own studies,” Abramson writes in an article published in The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine in 2005.

    “The editors, peer reviewers, and editorial writers who are trusted to evaluate the accuracy of the analyses are thus often not able to do so.”

    I No Longer Believe Drug-Company-Sponsored Studies

    I No Longer Believe Drug Studies Paid For By The Drug Companies

    I previously stated that I no longer believe drug studies paid for by the drug companies or drug researchers paid for by the drug companies.

    I believe that data from ALL drug studies that are sponsored by the drug companies has been manipulated in order to make their drugs look better than they are or that they delete data that they don’t want you to see.
