In the recent paper “Do Current Clinical Trials Meet Society’s Needs? A Critical Review of Recent Evidence” published in the October 14 issue of JACC (J Am Coll Cardiol 2014;64:1615–28), the authors wish to point out that HORIZONS-AMI was an investigator-initiated trial, as was HEAT-PPCI. Both trials did receive some funds from The Medicines Company, but in both instances the company had no involvement in any trial processes.
