Journal of Bioethical Inquiry: Documentada denuncia a farmacéuticas

En el trabajo “From Evidence-based Medicine to Marketing-based Medicine: Evidence from Internal Industry Documents” publicado en el Journal of Bioethical Inquiry por Spielmans y Parry, los autores, apoyados en evidencia documental, explican que “While much excitement has been generated surrounding evidence-based medicine, internal documents from the pharmaceutical industry suggest that the publicly available evidence base may not accurately represent the underlying data regarding its products. The industry and its associated medical communication firms state that publications in the medical literature primarily serve marketing interests. Suppression and spinning of negative data and ghostwriting have emerged as tools to help manage medical journal publications to best suit product sales, while disease mongering and market segmentation of physicians are also used to efficiently maximize profits. We propose that while evidence-based medicine is a noble ideal, marketing-based medicine is the current reality.” (Las negritas y el subrayado son míos, LJ).
