Letter to the Editor
Sir: The exchange of Letters to the Editor in the June 1996
(pp. 265–269) issue titled “Incentive Bias?” prompted our response.
We have often wondered whether an incentive bias influences
the Journal not to state in each article printed in a
supplement that a pharmaceutical company has provided financial
support. This acknowledgment is made on the cover of the
supplement, but if reprints of a particular article are distributed,
readers have no way of knowing who provided financial support.
