Parrish and Blockman make excellent points about conflict of interest (COI), particularly in the context of 'medical leadership'. As key opinion leaders themselves (both are members of the National Essential Medicines List Committee (2013 - 2015), as is the second signatory to this letter - the term does not imply membership of an advisory panel to any for-profit vendor of health-related goods or services), the authors are well placed to make comments. An aspect of COI not considered in their article relates to regulatory authorities.
