Financial Conflicts Of Interest In Science, Joanna K. Sax Jan 2012

Financial Conflicts Of Interest In Science, Joanna K. Sax

Annals of Health Law

This Article proposes a new direction for addressing financial conflicts of interest, which plague biomedical research and threaten scientific integrity. This Article descriptively states the controversy surrounding financial conflicts of interest by explaining how these conflicts arise and the damage that can be created as a result. By describing the scientific process, the Article explains that changes to the academic environment may allow the public-private interaction to proceed, without creating the problems associated with financial conflicts of interest.

Financial conflicts of interest are created when the profit-seeking motive of a private funding source unduly influences an academic scientist's primary ...


Putting Together The Pieces: Recent Proposals To Fill In The Genetic Testing Regulatory Puzzle, Serra J. Schlanger Jan 2012

Putting Together The Pieces: Recent Proposals To Fill In The Genetic Testing Regulatory Puzzle, Serra J. Schlanger

Annals of Health Law

The idea that genetic information is different from other medical information and therefore needs special protection has led to a regulatory puzzle where genetic testing is currently regulated under three separate schemes. Although genetic tests for over 2,000 diseases are available, less than 10% of these tests have been reviewed for clinical validity or utility. Recent action by some genetic testing companies has prompted the federal government to propose changes to the current regulatory scheme. This article discusses the current framework and the recent developments before examining some of the concerns and challenges that face the implementation of these ...

Options For State And Local Governments To Regulate Non-Cigarette Tobacco Products, Michael Freiberg Jan 2012

Options For State And Local Governments To Regulate Non-Cigarette Tobacco Products, Michael Freiberg

Annals of Health Law

Most tobacco control laws were written to address the scourge of smoking - particularly smoking cigarettes. As a result, these laws frequently exclude non-cigarette tobacco products, which are becoming more prevalent on the market. These regulatory gaps jeopardize public health by increasing the possibility that these products will be used - particularly by minors and young adults. This article examines gaps in regulation using five products as case studies: dissolvable tobacco products, electronic cigarettes, little cigars, snus, and water pipes. In addition, this article presents policy options that state and local governments can adopt to regulate these products more effectively, including regulations ...


Beyond Safe And Effective: The Role Of The Federal Government In Supporting And Disseminating Comparative-Effectiveness Research, Maggie H. Francis Jan 2012

Beyond Safe And Effective: The Role Of The Federal Government In Supporting And Disseminating Comparative-Effectiveness Research, Maggie H. Francis

Annals of Health Law

Over the past century, medical advancements have resulted in tremendous health gains for Americans. Although the federal government has played a prominent role in ensuring that new treatments are safe and effective, questions about which medical treatments work best under which circumstances have largely remained unanswered. Thus, the federal government's recent major investments in comparative-effectiveness research have potential to play a significant role in helping both patients and health care providers navigate the vast array of available treatment options, as well as in improving the quality, efficiency, and delivery of health care system-wide. Yet, the controversial nature of the ...
