AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Pfizer Inc. has become the latest drug maker to disclose payments it has made to doctors and hospitals.

According to Pfizer’s Web site, 4,500 professionals and institutions were paid $35 million by Pfizer Inc. in the second half of last year. The database details payments Pfizer made worth $25 or more, and totaling at least $500.

About 1,500 healthcare professionals received an average of $5,000 to “provide input and advice about the needs of patients.” Another $2,800 received an average of $3,400 to serve as speakers on Pfizer drugs. Two hundred and fifty research institutions received a total of $15.3 million for help researching and testing new medicines.

According to The Wall Street Journal Journal, Pfizer said it is the first in the industry to report payments made to doctors and professionals for conducting clinical trials testing potential new drugs.

Pfizer’s new disclosure effort comes just months after the drug maker struck an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice to pay $2.3 billion to settle claims arising from the illegal marketing of some drugs, including the painkiller Bextra; Geodon, an anti-psychotic drug; Zyvox, an antibiotic; and Lyrica, an anti-epileptic drug. Among the charges covered by the settlement were allegations that Pfizer paid kickbacks to health care providers to induce them to prescribe these, as well as other, drugs.
