Drug Companies Finance Private Activities

Published måndag 10 december 2007 kl 10.10
Getting extra gimmicks from the drug company?

Millions of dollars that have been paid by drug companies to medical services to test their medicines is being misused.

According to Swedish Radio news in some cases only a fraction of the money has been used for actual testing and the rest on overseas trips, presents and staff parties. The rules were tightened a few years ago after it was discovered that the drug companies had been paying for trips and parties for physicians.

Today the companies are not allowed to cover the costs of activities within the medical services, among other reasons such as to keep the doctors impartial to the medicines they prescribe.
