ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the reform proposals precluding the bias in the clinical trials used in drug testing in the U.S. It mentions that the federal government has pursued alternative strategies to counter bias when the reform proposal was neglected for over half a century due to the opposition of the pharmaceutical industry. It says that the creation of a governmental center to assess drug effectiveness and compare the costs and benefits of alterative drug therapies is proposed by doctors Wayne Ray, Marie Griffin, and Jerry Avorn. Moreover, the regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding clinical investigations had not been finalized by October 1979.
