Conflict of Interest: None Declared
We are sincerely thankful to the Editor in Chief, JAMA and the Editor, JAMA Internal Medicine for giving “Notice of Retraction” to Sato Y, et al., due to acknowledgment of scientific misconduct.
This research paper (now retracted research paper) has an Altmetric score of 6, which is a high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention, 1blog post & 33 citations so far.
But this raises many questions in the scientific community because the articles published in journals of JAMA network are accepted by the academics and researchers wholeheartedly all over the world.
This research paper published in Aug, 2005 and “Notice of Retraction” issued this year (Published Online: June 3, 2016. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed. 2016.3177), within this period the scientific community well utilized the facts of this article for research purpose, for meta-analysis, for research projects, and to prepare guidelines by the scientific bodies all over the world.
The time-money and manpower has been affected, but the pharmaceutical companies got benefits most.
The patients and society is affected largely more than others and it looks that cheated, ultimately affect faith and trust to the journal and its published articles.

Regards ,
Dr Rajiv Kumar, Dr Jagjit Singh. Faculty, Deptt. of Pharmacology. Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh, 160030, India.
