Research subjects want to know about financial conflicts

My lede:

Research participants want to be told about clinical investigators’ financial conflicts, and sharing that information usually enhances trust, a new study says.

But researchers behind the five-year, $3 million Conflict of Interest Notification Study, or COINS, warn that disclosure should not be the only strategy used to protect human subjects from the potential harms posed by investigators’ financial relationships with research sponsors.

The whole shebang.
