Fujii case

The status of three articles by Dr Y. Fujii published in Anaesthesia can be summarised as follows:

Recovery of post-tetanic count and train-of-four responses at the great toe and thumb by Y. Saitoh, Y. Fujii, K. Takahashi, K. Makita, H. Tanaka, K. Amaha: the institution has affirmed the conduct of this study and so this article still stands

Relationship between stimulating current and accelographic train-of-four response at the great toe by Y. Saitoh, Y. Narumi, Y. Fujii, M. Ueki: the institution cannot affirm proper conduct of this study, nor its data nor ethical approval, and so this article is retracted

Prophylactic anti-emetic therapy with granisetron, droperidol and metoclopramide in female patients undergoing middle ear surgery by Y. Fujii, H. Toyooka, H. Tanaka: the institution cannot affirm proper conduct of this study, and so this article is retracted
