recent article showing drug studies are biased by funding?

there was a recent article that may have been in the new england journal of medicine, that showed that studies are more likely to find new treatments are superior to old ones if they are funded by private sources (rather than governmental ones).

Can you please help me find that article?

Thanks!!!
