Conflicts of Interest in FDA Advisory Committees

The Paradox of Multiple Financial Ties

(p.134) Chapter Seven Conflicts of Interest in FDA Advisory Committees
FDA in the Twenty-First Century

Genevieve Pham-Kanter

Columbia University Press

This chapter summarizes findings from an analysis of financial ties of FDA advisory committee members during the 15-year period covering 1997-2011. Focusing on a facet of conflicts of interest that has not been empirically well-studied--exclusive financial ties versus multiple financial ties and their implications for voting behavior in drug review meetings--this study finds that, contrary to the conventional narrative, individuals with multiple, nonexclusive financial relationships do not vote differently from committee members who have no financial ties.

Keywords:   conflict of interest, FDA advisory committee, exclusive tie, multiple ties, drug approval, voting
