    Statins: ASCOT-LLC Analysis

    Post by graham64 on Sun May 07 2017, 22:56

    A more balanced report of ASCOT at Medscape plus a long list of disclosures  

    The study was funded by Pfizer, Servier Research Group, and Leo Laboratories. Sever reports that his institution held a grant for the conduct of ASCOT in the UK and Ireland; he has also received speaker's honoraria from Pfizer and Amgen and is a recipient of the National Institute for Health Research Senior Investigator Award and supported by the BioMedical Research Centre Award to the Imperial College Healthcare National Health Service Trust. Disclosures for the coauthors are listed in the paper. Pedro-Botet reports receiving lecture honoraria from AstraZeneca, Esteve, Ferrer, Merck, Mylan, and Sanofi. Rubies-Prat reports no relevant financial relationships. Nissen reports receipt of grants from Amgen, Pfizer, Esperion, Lilly, AstraZeneca, the Medicines Company, Takeda, Orexigen, Novo Nordisk, and Novartis.

    Peter Sever = Rory Collins lite.

    Yes I've had a subscription to Medscape for years now and have never (to my knowledge) been spammed or otherwise negatively affected.

    At best they have a lot of stuff which is not quite leading edge but the sort of thing your doctor should know, at worst, well like everywhere in the medical arena beware of the sponsors.
