Suite de l’affaire Wakefield.
2 février 2010 Laisser un commentaire
Le Lancet vient officiellement, après les recommandations de l’équivalent du conseil de l’ordre britannique, de retirer la publication du Dr Wakefield de ses pages. Voici la justification:
Following the judgment of the UK General Medical Council’s Fitness to Practise Panel on Jan 28, 2010, it has become clear that several elements of the 1998 paper by Wakefield et al. are incorrect, contrary to the findings of an earlier investigation. In particular, the claims in the original paper that children were “consecutively referred” and that investigations were “approved” by the local ethics committee have been proven to be false. Therefore we fully retract this paper from the published record.
