Press Releases

Statements in the international media have described the events resulting from the retraction by several leading medical journals of a large number of articles describing scientific studies by a German physician, Joachim Boldt. Boldt was dismissed from his position as head of anesthesia in the Klinikum Ludwigshafen in the state of Rheinland-Pfalz in Germany in November 2010, following initial findings by a leading anesthesia journal that a paper describing a clinical study which Boldt published in the journal had been fabricated.
