Abstract: The reader will note that the positions expressed by Kharazian and Rosner in this “Clinical Quarrels” section of this issue of FNRE is missing the position paper on urinary neurotransmitter testing. The reason is simply that those authors representing the position of the efficacy of this procedure withdrew their paper one day before the present issue went to press. Whilst the Editors-in-Chief and editorial board have no position on the issue, the reader is left to draw his or her own conclusion after studying the literature on the other side of the quarrel. The position statements by both Kharazzian and Rosner provide ample references to the alternative side of the quarrel.
Additionally, the Editors-in-Chief of FNRE would like to reiterate that part of the function of a scientific archival journal is both to foment debate in areas that have valid irreconcilable differences of opinion so that these differences are aired, thought through, and engaged by the writers and by the readership with the result being fresh insight if done respectfully and with dignity. We invite the readership and all interested parties to use the “Clinical Quarrels” format to air controversial topics for discussion.
