Case Study Provided A manuscript was submitted to your journal. During review, one of the referees noticed that the mean arterial blood pressure, total body weight, and glomerular filtration rate on sham-operated male and female rats appeared identical to data included in an article published in another journal by the same authors a year earlier. The similarity extended to the same number of animals used and the same error on each of the aforementioned data. When queried, the author became irritated and asked, "Why shouldn’t these data be identical? These are the same animal groups." He went on to argue that the point of the two articles were different. What should be done?
