Office of Inspector General: CDC Lax in Policing Advisors’ Conflicts of Interest

JAMA. 2010;303(5):412. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.40

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) failed to identify or resolve potential conflicts of interest among its 2007 advisory committee members more than half the time, according to a report by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

The report (http://www.oig.hhs.gov/oei/reports/oei-04-07-00260.pdf), released in December 2009, was based on a review of documentation for 246 experts serving on one of the CDC's 17 committees in 2007 and assessed how well the agency followed its own ethics guidelines as well as federal ethics regulations.
