Resumen

PAEZ MORENO, Ricardo. Pharmacy industry research: conditioned by market interests?. Acta bioeth. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp. 237-246. ISSN 1726-569X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S1726-569X2011000200010.

Research sponsored by pharmacy industry obeys to scientific interests of highest quality, but at the same time to several economic interests, since being funded by transnational corporations must be subjected to rules imposed by market. This article questions the measure in which this dynamic conditions scientific integrity and the search for treatments for great health needs. Through literature review, it is shown how scientific innovation has diminished and research priorities are conditioned by market.

Palabras llave : pharmacy industry; clinical trials; scientific integrity; economic interests.
