Dixon RB.
The current status of guidelines for clinical research from the viewpoint of the pharmaceutical industry.
J Clin Pharmacol 1977 Nov-Dec; 17:(11-12):691-6


The guidelines for clinical research are here to stay. Even if they could, itis unlikely that industry sponsors would abolish them. Industry should heed the regulatory description of the guidelines as illustrations of acceptable standards, not as minimal requirements. In some cases, more than just the studies suggested in the guidelines may be required for an approvable new drug application. Hopefully, the Food and Drug Administration will continue to discuss with industry guidelines interpretations with respect ot individual drugs and to refer disputes to the advisory panels and not to adhere rigidly to the strictest interpretation.

As an advertising man, I can assure you that advertising which does not work does not continue to run. If experience did not show beyond doubt that the great majority of doctors are splendidly responsive to current [prescription drug] advertising, new techniques would be devised in short order. And if, indeed, candor, accuracy, scientific completeness, and a permanent ban on cartoons came to be essential for the successful promotion of [prescription] drugs, advertising would have no choice but to comply.
