AbstractThe article presents a study which seeks to examine the policies adopted by U.S. medical schools in addressing potential conflicts of interest involving members of the Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) and administrative staff. The study found that seventy-four percent of the IRBs have adopted policies that deal with the conflicts of interest of members. It also noted a variation in the definition of conflicts of interest among IRBs.
