Additive effect of propofol and fentanyl precipitating cardiogenic shock

The manuscript titled "Additive effect of propofol and fentanyl precipitating cardiogenic shock" by Prabhakaran AJ published in Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics (JPP) 2013;4:217-9. 1 is retracted.

After the publication of the above article, one of the astute readers reported that a large part of the text is plagiarized from a similar clinical description published in Journal of Medical Case Report (JMCR) 2011,5,382. 2 Doubts were raised whether the work reported was genuine. We contacted the author who could not satisfactorily respond to our queries but expressed his inability to produce the case records and laboratory reports.

The editors of JPP had a discussion over email and concluded that the JPP article was indeed plagiarized from the JMCR article and the genuineness is suspect. Since the author could not satisfactorily defend his paper and contravened the declaration he made while submitting his manuscript, it was decided to retract the article from JPP and Pubmed and not to consider any manuscript submitted by him in future. The corresponding author of the article Dr. A. J. Prabhakaran, Department of Pharmacology, Meenakshi Medical College and Research Institute (Meenakshi University), Enathur, Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu, India will be informed of the decision of JPP.
