"Dr. Howard C. Bauchner, the editor in chief of JAMA, said that verifying each author’s disclosures would not be worth the time or effort."

Same as it ever was. How many times have I heard some version of this story over the past 25 years?

The New York Times reports:

One is dean of Yale’s medical school. Another is the director of a cancer center in Texas. A third is the next president of the most prominent society of cancer doctors.

These leading medical figures are among dozens of doctors who have failed in recent years to report their financial relationships with pharmaceutical and health care companies when their studies are published in medical journals, according to a review by The New York Times and ProPublica and data from other recent research.
