I have a relationship with a for-profit and/or a not-for-profit organization to disclose, in the form of direct financial payments (including receipt of honoraria): various licensed producers. Funded grants or clinical trials: licensed producer. I intend to make therapeutic recommendations for medications that have not received regulatory approval (i.e. “off-label” use of medication).
