As the Editor of the Archives of Neurology, I am writing to inquire about your article titled “Cross-reactive T-Cell Receptors in Tumor and Paraneoplastic Target Tissue,” which was published in the May 2009 issue of the Archives.1

You recently wrote to the Editor of The Journal of the Neurological Sciences (JNS) that:

Actually, there is a problem, which requires a candid explanation from you so I can make a judgment about how this happened and what should be reported to our readers. The JNS article was accepted August 6, 2008, and the Archives of Neurology article was accepted October 1, 2008. The 2 articles shared biological material from 1 patient, which was not disclosed to the Archives. In addition to making a timely, voluntary disclosure to me and my editors, your article should have included a reference to the JNS article. Both the disclosure of the duplicate biological material and the reference to the JNS article in the Archives article should have been made to us before publication. These facts may have influenced our decision to accept and publish your study in our journal, and most certainly would have been shared with our readers. The AMA Manual of Style sections 5.3 and 5.3.2 indicate that you should have informed and consulted me about these facts when you submitted your manuscript.2
