Court Orders Scientific Misconduct Labels Removed From Fisher's Work

WASHINGTON--Bernard Fisher, MD, Distinguished Service Professor of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, has won a court order requiring that scientific misconduct labels be removed from citations of his papers in federal databases (Cancerlit and Medline).

The labels were added at the insistence of the Office of Research Integrity after last year's revelations of misconduct by a Montreal participant in NSABP trials headed by Dr. Fisher. The government, through faxes sent to distributors of the databases, will also apologize for the labels, stating that Dr. Fisher's own research has never been found to be at fault.
