Dear Colleagues,

The Sexual Medicine Society of North America would like to ask your attention for an initiative to send a letter to the Editor of JAMA recommending retraction of the article published in JAMA by Vigen et al entitled “Association of testosterone therapy with mortality, myocardial infarction, and stroke in men with low testosterone levels”. JAMA 2013;310: 1829–36.

The SMSNA has decided to support this initiative. As having as many individual signers as possible will be of great benefit, we kindly request you to consider supporting the letter to the Editor of JAMA recommending retraction.

Please find attached related documents regarding this initiative:

  1. A letter to the Editor of JAMA recommending retraction of the article published in JAMA by Vigen et al entitled “Association of testosterone therapy with mortality, myocardial infarction, and stroke in men with low testosterone levels” . JAMA 2013;310: 1829–36.
  2. Letters to the JAMA Editor criticizing the study and pointing out flaws.
  3. An editorial written to in response to this article and published recently.
  4. The corrections by the Authors of the JAMA article, which makes this study’s results very unreliable and warrant retraction.

If you agree with the letter to the Editor of JAMA recommending retraction and you are comfortable signing it, please send an email to:

Dr. Abraham Morgentaler
His email is amorgent@yahoo.com.

In your email please include the following text
"Please add my name to list of co-signers."

In addition please include

  1. Your name
  2. City
  3. Country
  4. Academic affiliation if available.

If, however, you feel uncomfortable signing this letter, please disregard this message.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,
Dr. Burnett, SMSNA President
