JAMA Ophthalmology has been notified by the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus that the university completed a scientific misconduct investigation involving research published by Rajendra Kadam, MPharm, and has determined that 10 papers with Kadam as an author contain falsified and/or fabricated data. For the article published in 2011 by Kadam et al1 in JAMA Ophthalmology, then known as Archives of Ophthalmology, the original liquid chromatographic/mass spectrometric data were not available to compare with the data used in the analysis, and the investigative committee was unable to validate the data reported in the study.1 Therefore, the committee was unable to reach any definitive conclusion related to the integrity or reliability of the data in this report. This Editorial Expression of Concern is to inform readers about possible concerns related to data therein. If additional information becomes available about the integrity of the data reported in this article, we will determine whether additional action is warranted.
