logo_lancetThe Lancet lifted an embargo early on Thursday, following a break.

From an email sent out to The Lancet press list at 7:02 a.m. UK time Thursday morning:

Following an embargo break on this series of papers, we have now lifted the embargo with immediate effect. You are free to report on the papers at any time.

The papers will be live on our website as soon as possible, here: http://www.thelancet.com/gbd

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.

The Lancet tells Embargo Watch it was Reuters that broke the embargo, which was scheduled for 2330 UK time Thursday.
