Science interviews Arturo Casadevall, M.D., Ph.D., about the surprising decision by PLoS Pathogens to retract a study before discussing it with the authors. While a portion of the retracted 2006 study is still valid – identifying for the first time XMVR, the virus that has become notorious for its now-refuted link to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – some of its other findings have been proven wrong, most notably those linking the virus to prostate cancer. Dr. Casadevall noted that it was unusual for a journal to issue a retraction without discussing it with the authors ahead of time. Dr. Casadevall is professor and chair of microbiology & immunology at Einstein.

Arturo Casadevall, M.D., Ph.D., questions the individual and societal benefits of the intense competition among scientists in a Scientific American editorial. The "priority rule," which gives credit for a discovery to the first scientist who reports it, is a significant driver of this competition and Dr. Casadevall and his co-author Ferric Fang, M.D., argue that it may have outlived its usefulness in an era of complexity and collaboration. Dr. Casadevall is professor and chair of microbiology & immunology at Einstein.
