Retraction Note: Trials

https://doi.org/10.1186/1745-6215-13-157

The Editors-in-Chief are retracting this article [1]. After publication concerns were raised with respect to inconsistencies between this trial protocol and the trial registry entry. Subsequent investigation has shown that patient recruitment had been completed before submission of the protocol to the journal, which is a breach of the journal’s editorial policy. Concerns have also been raised that one of the reviewers was added to this article as an author after revision. Michele Carenini and Wendy Moreno Peña agree with this retraction and Angelo Compare does not agree with this retraction. Vassilis Kouloulias, Vontas Apostolos, Enrico Molinari, Enzo Grossi and Efstathopoulos Efstathios did not reply to correspondence about this retraction.
