The purpose of drug-company-sponsored drug studies is to maximize profits for the drug companies 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.
“So what are dedicated clinicians to do?” Abramson asks in an article published in The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine in 2005.
“The first step is to give up the illusion that the primary purpose of modern medical research is to improve Americans’ health most effectively and efficiently.
“In our opinion, the primary purpose of commercially funded clinical research is to maximize financial return on investment, not health.”
