Abstract

Feringa HH, Elhendy A, Bax JJ, Boersma E, de Jonge R, Schouten O, et al. Baseline plasma N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide is associated with the extent of stress-induced myocardial ischemia during dobutamine stress echocardiography. Coron Artery Dis 2006; 17:255–259.---A Committee established by the Board of Erasmus Medical Center, The Netherlands, that reported in September 2012, considers the reporting of the research by Feringa et al. to have been negligent and scientifically incorrect according to two criteria: the inclusion and exclusion criteria reported in the publication were not applied consistently, with the result that the patient population actually studied differs in material ways from the published description; and, there are material differences between the source documentation (the patients' dossier), the case record form used in the study, the study database, and the publication. For this reason the article by Feringa et al. is retracted from publication.
