    Perhaps the responsibility to make science research malfeasance public should go to some other agency so that there is no conflict.

    I don't think it's a matter of conflict of interest or malfeasance per se, but more of a glitch in a system that needs to be fixed.

    Nonetheless, an interesting point. Can you elaborate?

    I was thinking of :

    However, failing to notify the medical or scientific communities about allegations of serious research misconduct in clinical trials is incompatible with the FDA’s mission to protect the public health.

    In the second paragraph of the first post. I have this week read of another science researcher who allegedly falsified data. It seems to be a growing problem (although this was not a clinical trial). So I guess I was being a bit general in my post that there should be an oversight agency that has the mandate to expose misconduct. It seems that there are conflicts with the FDA as I read this comment.

    The FDA’S reply:

    Not sure what to make of this.
