Top Cancer Researcher Fails to Disclose Corporate Financial Ties in Major Research Journals – The New York Times
One of the world’s top breast cancer doctors failed to disclose millions of dollars in payments from drug and health care companies in recent years, omitting his financial ties from dozens of research articles in prestigious publications like The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet.
The researcher, Dr. José Baselga, a towering figure in the cancer world, is the chief medical officer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He has held board memberships or advisory roles with Roche and Bristol-Myers Squibb, among other corporations, has had a stake in start-ups testing cancer therapies, and played a key role in the development of breakthrough drugs that have revolutionized treatments for breast cancer.
Of course, the whole medical industrial complex is mostly just one huge corrupt swamp. There are huge money bags dangling in front of everyone. Just as long as they keep their mouths shut and don’t disclose the dirty secrets, just about everyone gets rich off the suffering of people.
