According to COPE (Committee
on Publication Ethics)’s Retraction guidelines, your Tau papers should be
retracted since your Tau formula was developed based on FOUR bold assumptions
which inflicted at least two logic flaws:

It is common sense
that an incorrect theory cannot be validated by decent experiments. Fact is in the whole past year, nobody had used this formula in their projects. (Google Scholar)

Fair to say that quite
a few papers need to be retracted, yet just left to rest in peace. Your Tau
papers are different because they are from Top authors, top journals and top
institutions. They are dominant forces which can easily destroy the other
similar endeavors.

For more than 20
years, I have sent you five private letters to try to clarify this issue, never
got a reply. Silence is not always
gold. If we choose to leave it alone, some direct consequences are:

1) Some researchers
will use your formula again in the future. It is a waste of time, energy, money
and animals…it is also misleading to clinicians.

2) I developed some
Tau formulas with universal mathematical laws. However, researchers based on my
formulas found it hard to get their papers published due to your papers. So,
retraction of your papers can set Tau free.

We all make mistakes. Early
this year, Nobel laureate Frances Arnold tweeted to retract her paper and got
tons of praise.

Tau calculation is a
tough question in Echocardiography. Especially in the case of your Tau
formulas, you probably are the only one who can move things forwards. Don’t
hesitate to let me know if I am wrong.
