JNJ Looking to get Negative Pinnacle Story Retracted

The authors of a Stat article stated "Grave Fraudulence" when discussing the study.

Last December, Brown University's Dr. David Egilman and colleagues published a scholarly paper that identified serious flaws in a study of a hip prosthesis, and accused the medical device maker DePuy - a wholly owned subsidiary of J&J - of "grave fraudulence."

"J&J/DePuy violated the study protocol and manipulated data; consented participants in violation of standards protecting human subjects; and did not secure Institutional Review Board approval for all study sites," they wrote about a clinical trial of the companies' Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip replacement system, which was taken off the market in 2013 after many patients had to have the artificial hips removed.
