In this issue of THE JOURNAL, we are publishing a report1 of work that started 9 years ago, was concluded in December 1990, and the data from which were published in another journal in July 1995. Given that we at JAMA like to keep up-to-date and that we try never to republish what others have already put in print, the reader might well ask what is going on. The story necessary to answer this question provides a cautionary tale that illustrates the sharply differing views of research taken by the university researcher and the company sponsoring that research, if the company's product is at stake. At a time when an increasing proportion of research funding is provided by private companies,2 the story holds lessons for both, as well as for university faculties, administrators, regulatory agencies, and for physicians who prescribe on the basis of evidence.
