Important notes


Research payments are distinct from speaking and consulting. The figure listed does not reflect the actual compensation received by the physician listed as the principal investigator.

Payments for clinical studies may include costs associated with patient care, supplies, as well as the time spent by health care professionals treating patients and managing the study.

The reports include both the name of the health provider who performed the service and, when reported, the entity paid. They may be different.

Such payments are legal, but research has shown that drug-company marketing can influence what a doctor prescribes. How you can use this data »
