GSK say they are going to stop bunging money to doctors who push their products, and thinks other pharmas will follow their lead.

I have a feeling it is just a PR stunt after they got caught out badly paying bribes to doctors in China, and fined $490million.

Will the pharmas really clean up their act?

"GlaxoSmithKline has become the first big drugmaker to stop paying doctors to promote its products in response to mounting pressure on the pharmaceuticals industry over conflicts of interest with medical professionals.

The UK group will no longer pay medics anywhere in the world to make presentations on its behalf at medical seminars — setting it apart from rivals which still routinely hire senior doctors to educate their peers about drug brands."
