McCrory P. A cause for concern? Br J Sports Med 2005;39:249.

This article has been retracted due to plagiarism of the following material:

Piazza O, Sirén AL, Ehrenreich H. Soccer, neurotrauma and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: is there a connection? Curr Med Res Opin 2004;20:505–8. doi: 10.1185/030079904125003296

We would like to acknowledge the preliminary work of Nick Brown in investigating publications by Dr Paul McCrory and thank him for bringing these concerns to our attention.

During 2021 and 2022 there was an investigation by British Journal of Sports Medicine and BMJ which found that some of McCrory’s work was the product of publication misconduct. British Journal of Sports Medicine published a summary of the investigation.1
