Sir Benjamin Djulbegovic and colleagues1 suggest that government or non-profit-organisation-funded trials are less prone to biases and fraud than trials funded by profitmaking organisations.However, there are many other factors that might mislead researchers including, excessive ambitions, peer pressure, career opportunities, and acceptance of studies for publication. Thus, bias, errors, misunderstanding, and fraud have been described in various settings of clinical trials.2, 3, 4 In our opinion, it therefore seems speculative to compare profit-making funding with non-profit making funding in an attempt to discern biases.
