All statistical analyses were performed by using SAS software, version 9.2 . Results Patients and Procedures From March 19, 2013, to April 3, 2014, we assessed 13,789 patients for eligibility at 202 clinical sites in the usa and Australia. Of the 2008 sufferers at 193 sites who underwent randomization, 1322 were assigned to receive the Absorb scaffold, and 686 to receive the Xience stent . The baseline features of the organizations were well matched . Despite nominally larger device diameters and more regular postdilatation, the mean severe gain in minimum lumen size and the absolute minimal lumen diameter within the device were less with the Absorb scaffold than with the Xience stent . However, there is no significant between-group difference in the in-segment angiographic procedures.There are many lessons to be learned from these cases of peer-reviewer and peer-review fraud. One is definitely that the electronic manuscript-handling systems that most journals make use of are as susceptible to exploitation and hacking as other data systems. Chen and Moon, for example, both abused an attribute of ScholarOne: the e-mail messages sent to scholars inviting them to examine a manuscript include log-in information, and whoever receives those messages can sign into the system. Most other digital manuscript submission systems have similar loopholes that may easily be hacked.
