Sir.—As editors we wish to protest most strongly about the way in which AJDC appears to have published scientific material for which we hold the copyright. We refer to the article by Oates et al that we published in our February issue in 1984, pages 147 to 150. The material that you published later that year refers to the same group of children and most of the results had already been presented in our journal.
