The article published in the January 2001 issue of the Archives titled “Prophylaxis With Oral Granisetron for the Prevention of Nausea and Vomiting After Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy” by Fujii et al1 is hereby retracted. Allegations have been raised about the scientific integrity and ethical oversight of the research conducted by Dr Fujii.2 Our investigation revealed that Dr Fujii and coauthors had not applied to the ethical committee for institutional review board approval regarding this study, and therefore we are retracting this article.
