The approved version of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute’s Methodology Report strikes language that questioned the trustworthiness of pharmaceutical industry-generated research.
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute selected five drug-related research topics for funding, including a look at narrow- versus broad-spectrum antibiotics for acute respiratory tract infections in children, though all studies are observational. PCORI approved 52 CER projects in this third funding round, including many declined in the first round.
