This study explored financial conflicts of interest (FCOI) among authors of published guidelines and consensus statements and their relationship to endorsement of specific drugs.  93% of recent articles reported FCOI status.  Of articles publishing funding sources, 65% reported partial or full industry funding.  Endorsement of chemotherapeutic agents was strongly associated with FCOIs (p=0.001).
