Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Nature Medicine

Dr Kurt Hellman, formerly Honorary Consultant in Clinical Oncology at the Westminster Hospital, London, complained that the magazine had published an article claiming to have discovered a new approach to cancer treatment, which failed to mention that this discovery and its clinical consequences had been previously described by Dr Hellman and his associates.

The complaint was resolved when the magazine published a letter from the complainant alongside a response (unseen by the complainant) from the author of the article.

Report: 65
