Exploring the FDA’s guidance on financial disclosure by clinical investigators

The core aim of the draft guidance is to discover the financial linkage between the healthcare organization that carries out the clinical trial and the physician who is the source from whom the drugs get prescribed after they are successfully tested and approved. Towards this end, the FDA has set guidelines that require the stakeholders in a clinical trial to make declarations to the FDA about their financial interests. These are part of 21 CFR 54.

The way in which this draft is to be implemented will be the core of a valuable learning session from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance.
