From FDA to MHRA: are drug regulators for hire?

Money derived from Industry

US Food and Drug Administration, $3,416,000,000 (2022)

The revolving door

FDA, nine out of 10 of its past commissioners, 2006 to 2019 went on to secure roles linked with pharmaceutical companies…

2005 UK, House of Commons’ health committee

Industry funding could lead MHRA, to “lose sight of the need to protect and promote public health above all else as it seeks to win fee income from the companies.”

BMJ investigation (2022)

We found that industry money permeates the globe’s leading regulators,

raising questions about their independence

Sociologist Donald Light, Rowan University, New Jersey

“Like the FDA, the TGA was founded to be an independent institute.

However, being largely funded by fees from the companies whose products it is charged to evaluate is a fundamental conflict of interest,

and a prime example of institutional corruption.”

It is no longer possible for doctors and patients to receive unbiased, rigorous evaluations from drug regulators.


“It’s the opposite of having a trustworthy organisation independently and rigorously assessing medicines.

They’re not rigorous, they’re not independent, they are selective, and they withhold data.

Doctors and patients must appreciate how deeply and extensively drug regulators can’t be trusted so long as they are captured by industry funding.”

Revisiting financial conflicts of interest in FDA advisory committees

Large study, FDA advisory committee members over 15 years,

those with financial interests solely in the sponsoring firm were more likely to vote in favour of the sponsor’s product.
