ies on Prescribing Patterns

"Over the last few years, one scandal after another has shown how drug company marketing can distort prescribing patterns," says Julio Sotelo (General Director, National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery of Mexico) in an essay in PLoS Medicine. Sotelo outlines a novel proposal to reduce the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on prescribing decisions.

"My proposal to realign the relationship between clinicians and drug companies is simple and is based on a single premise," he says. "I propose that a third party, appointed by academic institutions, must be compulsorily placed between clinical researchers and drug companies so that all dialogue (scientific and monetary) must be made through this third party." Sotelo calls this third party a Collegiate Research Council (CRC)--and proposes that it would be a committee jointly appointed by 1012 leading academic institutions.
