first_imgJust more than a year ago, researchers published a paper announcing that they had discovered how grizzly bears gain scores of weight before hibernation, but avoid the obesity-associated health problems, such as diabetes, that typically accompany such dramatic weight gain in people. Yesterday, Cell Metabolism retracted the paper after some of its authors at Amgen in Thousand Oaks, California, announced that the original paper contained falsified data.After sifting through computer files, scientists at the biotech company found that specific sets of data had been distorted to more convincingly support the paper’s claims.
