Role of conflict of interest in biomedical research


Pratyush Singh

Scientific knowledge is often considered objective and absolute; however, history of science shows that it is contingent upon the existing knowledge systems and the process of evidence generation itself. Randomized Control Trials are the gold standard as far as clinical evidence is concerned. Processes are incorporated to minimize an investigator’s bias towards obtaining a favorable outcome. As the role of big pharm becomes more prominent and rather pivotal in conducting modern clinical research, scientific community faces a new and overarching challenge: Conflict of Interest (Coif). This article will delve into the details of how Coif can potentially diminish the credibility of scientific research and how should consumers of scientific literature ascertain the reliability of industry sponsored clinical research.
