“A Unimed/Solvay educational grant was the sole source of funding for the [April 2000 Andropause Consensus] conference. According to Scott Hunt, the Endocrine Society’s executive director, Unimed even suggested some of the panel’s members. And, of the thirteen panelists in the final group, at least nine, including Swerdloff and his co-chair, had significant financial ties to the drug company, in the form of research grants, consulting arrangements, or speaking fees.”
