The "parasitic" relationship between pharma and journals

Thanks to Anne Taylor-Vaisey for this link to an interesting article in BMJ. A quick snippet:

    The relationship between medical journals and the drug industry is "somewhere between symbiotic and parasitic," according to the editor of the Lancet, Richard Horton. But at the moment it has swung too much towards the parasitic, he told the House Commons select committee on health last month in his oral evidence on the role of the industry.

Interesting read!
