Abstract

This paper analyzes the debate about the ethical conflicts of the methods used by the pharmaceutical industry in the research, production and dissemination of medicines. Three aspects are examined: the involvement of medical professionals with representatives of the pharmaceutical industry; the conflicts of interest regarding their role as sponsors of scientific research; and the evaluation of drugs on human beings. It is seen that the message for health promotion comes from medicalization; the major pharmaceutical industries do not exclusively produce merchandise, but especially subjectivities. In this way, the type of order established by them is revealed.
