The journal has conducted an in-depth investigation in accordance with the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines. Unfortunately, the authors’ institution has not been able to confirm or refute whether the events reported about the case are accurate. Consequently, readers are advised to interpret the details of this article with caution.
