re: COVID-19

How can you have a study where the authors themselves were not granted access to the raw data? But it happens all the time, particularly with Big Pharma studies.

Wow—285 articles cited this now retracted study. How many of those were updated to call out the retraction? How many news reports and how much propaganda resulted from this retracted study?

Retraction: Cardiovascular Disease, Drug Therapy, and Mortality in Covid-19. N Engl J Med. DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa2007621.

original article here.

Because all the authors were not granted access to the raw data and the raw data could not be made available to a third-party auditor, we are unable to validate the primary data sources underlying our article, “Cardiovascular Disease, Drug Therapy, and Mortality in Covid-19.”1 We therefore request that the article be retracted. We apologize to the editors and to readers of the Journal for the difficulties that this has caused.

WIND: IMO, anyone willing to publish based on unverifiable data has serious ethical problems.

Should there be “one free pass, twice and you can never publish again” standard?

The retraction doesn’t mean the findings are false, but it renders them non-credible.
