PMCID: PMC3364639 by Affes Nejmeddine, Bahloul Atef, Dammak Youssef, Beyrouti Ramez, and Beyrouti Mohamed Issam, published in North American Journal of Medical sciences [2]. Therefore, we withdraw this article of the medical literature in accordance with the guidelines and best editorial practices of the Committee on Publication Ethics. We apologize to our audience for this unfortunate situation.
