Spiro M.
Genentech, Inc, and symposium sponsorship.
Ann Emerg Med 1989 Aug; 18:(8):908-9


The publication of the proceedings of symposium on thrombolysis sponsored by Genentech raises a couple of concerns: 1) does the excessive marketing of tPA by Genentech increase the cost of the drug; 2) how valid are the recommendations of a symposium that is sponsored by a company that has a definite secondary financial gain in the results of the same symposium
