The panel was established with the goal of having no personal (ie, direct payment to the individual) financial conflicts of interest among its chairs and among fewer than half of its panel members. All potential panel members are asked to disclose any personal relationship(s) with pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, or health-related companies or ventures that may result in financial benefit. Disclosures are obtained prior to the panel member appointments and for 1 year prior to the initiation of their work on the panel. Full transparency of potential financial conflicts is an important goal for the guidance that best ensures the credibility of the process and the recommendations. Individuals are also asked to disclose funding of HCV-related research activities to their institutional division, department, or practice group. Disclosures are reviewed by the HCV guidance chairs, who make assessments based on the conflict-of-interest policies of the sponsoring organizations (AASLD and ...
1. Conflict of Interest Committee (COI Committee) is an administrative committee composed of members of the administration and, in some cases, members of the faculty and/or others that will review the Covered Individuals disclosures of Significant Financial Interests (SFIs), determine whether a Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) exists, and, if so, develop a Management Plan for the Covered Individual to manage, reduce, or eliminate the FCOI.. 2. Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) will be deemed to exist when the Institutes COI Committee reasonably determines that a Significant Financial Interest disclosed by the Covered Individual could directly and significantly affect the design, conduct, or reporting of Federally Funded Research, with the exception of Research funded through phase I support under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Note: Phase II SBIR and STTR programs are not exempt like phase I programs and are ...
Downloadable! This paper proposes a method to calculate undistributed profits, thus saving rates of non-financial firms using only the information given in their balance sheets. This allows us to analyze the saving behavior of non-financial firms even in the absence of their statement of cash flows, which contains dividend payments data. The balance sheets of non-financial firms are provided by TurkStat only for 2013 and 2014, so this paper is confined to the cross sectional analysis of the saving behavior of non-financial firms in Turkey. We find that the saving rate increases as past net profit margin increases for firms with profits in the preceding year. For the firms which declare loss in the preceding year, saving rate increases as the past value of net profit margin decreases. Our findings for the rest of the firm-level determinants are consistent with the previous studies: Firm size plays a role on corporate savings; leverage ratio has a negative impact on the saving rate; and the positive
Hong Kong, November 27, 2019 -- - Lower GDP growth will slow revenue and EBITDA growth, and stall deleveraging. - US-China trade tensions will continue to dampen investment and consumption levels. Moodys Investors Service believes credit conditions for Chinese non-financial companies is negative over the next 12 months, because of slowing GDP growth in China and US-China trade tensions. The credit impact of the negative trends for non-financial companies in China will be muted for most Moodys-rated companies says Lina Choi, a Moodys Senior Vice President. However, credit differentiation by sector will increase and issuer-specific analysis will become more important, adds Choi. In a just-released outlook for Chinese non-financial companies in 2020, Moodys says that companies in most sectors in China will see revenue growth slow and EBITDA margins contract. But rating trends will stay broadly stable. As for sector differences, Moodys points out that credit differentiation can be seen in ...
A seriously flawed and inflammatory attack on conflict of interest policies and regulations appeared recently in a most unexpected location: the venerable and trusted New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). In a series of rambling articles, one of the journals national correspondents, Lisa Rosenbaum, supported by the editor in chief, Jeffrey Drazen, tried to rationalise financial conflicts of interest in the medical profession.1 2 3 4 As former senior editors of the NEJM, we find it sad that the medical journal that first called attention to the problem of financial conflicts of interest among physicians would now backtrack so dramatically and indulge in personal attacks on those who disagree.. Physicians and the public rely on journals as unbiased and independent sources of information and to provide leadership to improve trust in medicine and the medical literature. Yet financial conflicts of interest have repeatedly eroded the credibility of both the medical profession and journals.5 6 As ...

Several years later, he learned that a number of external business relationships had been formed in one of our Latin American countries between a few of our top managers and members of their families. While not a violation of the law, and in fact common practice in that country, it was a clear violation of P&Gs conflict-of-interest policy. And the people involved knew it. Thank you.
For years, such consulting payments have raised concerns about the impact of money on a doctors decision about which drugs to prescribe or how to interpret research findings. Money can also shift a physicians sense of loyalty, said George Loewenstein, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who has studied medical conflict-of-interest policies. If someone has been paying you or employing you, it is very difficult to blow the whistle, said Professor Loewenstein, who teaches economics and psychology. It offends our sense of loyalty ...

Susan Darlow, PhD; Karin Hoffmann, RN, CCM. The ACCME/ANCC/ACPE defines conflict of interest as when an individual has an opportunity to affect CE content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CE activity. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC have not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC defines relevant financial relationships as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest..

On September 17, 1999, 18 year-old Jesse Gelsinger became the first subject in a gene transfer clinical trial to die from a reaction to a recombinant viral vector. Jesse suffered from a deficiency of ornithine-transcarbamylase (OTC), a necessary enzyme, and enrolled in a Phase I dose-escalation trial at the University of Pennsylvania. The clinical trial involved the injection of an adenoviral vector containing the gene. Jesse died after receiving the injection.. Subsequent investigations found that the Principal Investigator was an inventor for the technology used in the trial and held equity in the start-up company to which the technology was licensed. This case brought significant attention to the issue of financial conflicts of interest in research. Additional information about financial conflict of interest can be found on the NIH Conflict of Interest (COI) Page.

The typical conflict of interest arguments that are seen in medicine have to do with financial conflict of interest. If the current reporting database is to be believed they may be considerable. A commentary from Nature earlier this month (5) speaks to the non-financial side of conflicts of interest. The primary focus is on reproducibility as a marker of quality research. They cite the facts that 2/3 of members of the American Society for Cell Biology were unable to reproduce published results and that pharmaceutical researchers were able to reproduce the results from 1/4 or fewer high profile papers. They cite this as the burden of irreproducible research. They touch on what scientific journals have done to counter some of these biases, basically checklists of good design and more statisticians on staff. That may be the case for Science and Nature but what about the raft of online open access journals who not only have a less rigorous review process but in some cases require the authors to ...
Canadian universities are allowing faculty to engage in conflict-of-interest relationships, bring in external lecturers, accept gifts, research funding, and scholarships for their students, she said. Each of these ties to drug companies can contribute to biased understandings and the dissemination of incorrect information on drugs… Furthermore, having affiliations with drug companies is considered a prestigious and acceptable practice by medical students, who are not taught to decode what these relationships mean. ...
In my opinion, a conflict of interest does not disappear overnight. In the present case, I believe that the existence of a 13 year period during which the researcher held a Big Pharma endowed chair position is absolutely relevant today, even though the researcher has resigned that position. I believe that readers deserve to be informed about that 13-year financial relationship between the researcher and the pharmaceutical industry and that this relationship is relevant to the evaluation of potential bias in the conduct and reporting of the research, even though the relationship ceased to exist in early 2010. Thus, I believe that the conflict should continue to be reported and that the investigator has an obligation to inform journal readers of the past financial relationship ...
Non-financial reporting has risen in significance in recent years as the role of stakeholders who are not shareholders has been recognised in corporate governance frameworks. In the UK the strategic reporting provisions of the Companies Act 2006 give effect to this policy. In Part 1 we examined the strategic reports of the FTSE 100 companies from 2015 and 2016 and focused on compliance by companies with nonfinancial reporting requirements. We found that compliance with those requirements was very high, amounting even to super or over-compliance. This article (Part 2 of the project) assesses the quality of non-financial reporting through a series of interviews. It evaluates whether the current regulatory framework on non-financial reporting in the UK informs stakeholders adequately so as to facilitate effective engagement in corporate decision-making. ...
The researchers found that, while 83.3% of clean systematic reviews (with no conflict of interest) concluded that consuming soft drinks was a potential risk for weight gain, 83% of the reviews in which the authors admitted links with the industry gave the result that the scientific evidence for associating such consumption with weight increase was insufficient. These findings, underlined Ms. -Rastrollo, increase concern about the exactitude of the results from research financed by the food and drinks industry, although it is true that this research cannot evaluate which available interpretation is correct. In any case, this concern is supported by random and controlled trials amongst both children and adults, and in which a risk association between the consumption of soft drinks and weight gain was observed. The researchers from the University of Navarra point out that for authors stating they do not have a conflict of interest, systematic reviews financed by the drinks or sugar industry ...
In accordance with the ACCME Accreditation Criteria, the American College of Surgeons must ensure that anyone in a position to control the content of the educational activity has disclosed all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Therefore, it is mandatory that both the program planning committee and speakers complete disclosure forms. Individuals were required to disclosure all commercial relationships prior to their participation in the activity. The ACCME defines a commercial interest as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. It does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. The ACCME considers relevant financial relationships as financial transactions (in any amount) that may create a conflict of interest and occur within the 12 months preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content ...

Industry provides essential funding but can present researchers with a conflict of interest, argues David Weatherall. For vice-chancellors of impoverished universities, the growing links between academia and industry and the resulting sources of income must be welcome. The situation is equally attractive to academics who see it as a way of augmenting their miserable pay. But the increasing pressures on universities to move in this direction from government funding bodies are presenting problems that could have serious implications. Nowhere are these stresses and strains more evident than in biomedical research. Recently, the New England Journal of Medicine, which justly prides itself on its particularly tough conflict-of-interest guidelines, had to apologise publicly for falling standards over the past few years. An internal inquiry disclosed that nearly half the 40 articles on drug therapy published since 1997 were written by authors with serious conflicts of interest based on their ...
The Stark Law, you should know, generally prohibits physicians from referring Medicare patients for certain designated health services to entities with which the physician (or immediate family members) has a financial relationship (i.e., self-referring), and it prohibits the entity from billing Medicare for services provided pursuant to such prohibited referral.. The financial relationship that a physician might have with an entity can come in many forms: through his/her ownership of an interest in the entity, through employment (i.e., the entity can be the doctors own group practice) or independent contract with the entity, or some other contractual relationship with the entity. A typical example might be a physicians part ownership of a laboratory facility to which he refers a patient. Or, instead, perhaps the physician is the medical director of the lab to which he refers a patient. Or, the physician leases space, as landlord, to the lab.. The designated health services covered by Stark ...

I have shown you previously that there are any number of ways to set up studies to get the results you are looking for. More specifically, many researchers use a technique commonly known as Data Mining. When researchers mine data, it means that they do their study, and then look at the data to see if there is any conceivable way that it can be twisted to get to the sought after end point. Oh; I see. You are one of those people who still believe that scientific research is independent, unbiased, and untainted by financial conflicts of interest. Trust me. With our government so deeply entwined with so-called EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE (HERE is one such example), and drug companies always looking for new ways to cash in, it is difficult to trust anyone anymore. Science is bought and paid for by the highest bidder. Mostly it is whatever he who has the most cash says it is. Dont believe me? Check out the link on EBM above ...

In accordance with the ACCMEs Accreditation Criteria, the Society of Surgical Oncology must ensure that anyone in position to control the content of this educational activity has disclosed all financial relationships with a commercial interest. All educational planners, authors, reviewers, and other individuals in a position to control or influence the content of this activity were required to disclose all financial relationships with any commercial interest that have occurred within the past 12 months. This includes the disclosure of financial relationships of a spouse or partner. The ACCME considers financial relationships to create conflicts of interest when individuals have both a financial relationship with a commercial interest and the opportunity to affect the content of CME about the products or services of that commercial interest. The ACCME defines a commercial interest as any entity producing, marketing, reselling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used ...
Previous studies suggest that both motivation and task difficulty expectations activate brain regions associated with cognitive control. However, it remains an open question whether motivational and cognitive determinants of control have similar or dissociable impacts on conflict processing on a neural level. The current study tested the effects of motivation and conflict expectancy on activity in regions related to processing of the target and the distractor information. Participants performed a picture-word interference task in which we manipulated the size of performance-dependent monetary rewards (level of motivation) and the ratio of congruent to incongruent trials within a block (level of conflict expectancy). Our results suggest that motivation improves conflict processing by facilitating task-relevant stimulus processing and task difficulty expectations mainly modulate the processing of distractor information. We conclude that motivation and conflict expectancy engage dissociable control ...
The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai requires that each teacher/contributor or individual in a position to control the content of a CME activity accredited by the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary disclose the existence of any relevant financial interests or other relationships (e.g. paid speaker, employee, paid consultant on a board and/or committee for a commercial company) that would potentially affect the objectivity of activity content.

The disclosed information in no way presumes to assess the contributors qualifications or suitability. The intention is to provide full disclosure of any potential conflict of interest, real or apparent, which is related to a specific educational activity.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has decided to give the public another month to weigh in on the tightened financial reporting requirements that it proposed in May for its extramural investigators.. The Department of Health and Human Services, NIHs parent agency, announced on Friday that the public comment period for the proposed rules changes, which was to have ended on 20 July, has been extended to 19 August. Among other things, NIH is asking commentators whether it should clarify how the new rules would apply when an investigator changes institutions.. The request is significant because it follows this June article in the Chronicle of HIgher Education documenting how psychiatrist Charles Nemeroff evaded a two-year ban on applying for NIH grants by taking a new job as chair of psychiatry at the University of Miami. Nemeroff had been demoted by Emory University in Atlanta and banned from seeking NIH grants for at least two years, after he was found to have flouted financial ...

The Guardian The government yesterday announced sweeping changes to the medicines watchdog body after years of criticism and pressure, banning those who sit on its central licensing committee from having any personal or financial interests in pharmaceutical companies. Lord Warner, the health minister, said those who sat on the regulatory body would in future have three months to sell their shares and end their potentially lucrative consultancy agreements with drug companies. As the Guardian revealed last month, many of the doctors and scientists who sit on the present Committee on the Safety of Medicines (CSM), granting drug companies licences to sell medicines, also work as paid consultants to the industry. In 2001, 17 out of 36 members declared personal financial interests in drug companies, while more had indirect interests. When drugs in which they have an interest are discussed, members have to leave the room. Lord Warner yesterday went further than expected with a root and branch excision ...

Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet a-z. An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European 0-9. The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ASCII characters (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of Unicode characters that provides the basis for IDNs. The hostname rule requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen -. The Unicode form of an IDN therefore ...
