Triclosan study marks PNAS’s tenth embargo break this year
Although it didn’t lead to an early embargo lift, a university press office and a local news site broke the embargo today on a Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) study of whether the soap ingredient triclosan causes liver damage in mice.
PNAS tells Embargo Watch:
We saw them both shortly before the scheduled embargo. The link to the San Diego Metro story didn’t lead to the actual story until after the embargo. We will be following up with them. The press release was taken down immediately after we contacted the UC Davis news office.
The break is the tenth for PNAS this year.
