To the Editor:—

We read the publication by Kihara et al.1 with great interest. On close examination of the text, we noted numerous similarities between their publication and a manuscript that we previously published.2 In fact, substantive parts of the Abstract, Methods, Results and Discussion were identical to those in our publication. We would like to offer Kihara et al. an opportunity to explain the nature of the apparent plagiarism of our manuscript.
