Abstract

The Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), a program of ACOG, is one of 12 cooperative groups conducting clinical trials supported by the National Cancer Institute. Recently, an occurrence of research fraud was found in one of the other cooperative groups. The GOG maintains a quality assessment and assurance program that includes three primary functions: Original source documentation is examined to verify accuracy of treatment modalities, all protocols are regularly scrutinized for consistency and validity, and regular on-site audits are conducted at all institutions. The group endeavors to reassure physicians and their patients that research fraud is not rampant in the cooperative group system and that data published by the cooperative groups are reliable. (Obstet Gynecol 1994;84:1059-62).
