Abstract

Medical ghostwriting, while in and of itself ethical, is used for unethical purposes. Many ghostwritten articles are used by pharmaceutical companies to present manipulated data in order to increase sales. In response to the rise of ghostwritten articles responses such as stricter laws and publishing regulations are proposed. It is believed that the proposed laws and regulations will return trust to the medical field.
