Response to the editor letter
Dear Professor Behtash,
I am writing this letter to respond to the letter written by Professor Reda Hemida from Mansoura University, Egypt, regarding a publication of mine titled “The Association of Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia and Misoprostol Administered Before Suction Curettage of Molar Pregnancy,” published in 2019 in your journal.
I want to first thank Professor Hemida for reading my paper carefully and sharing his comments. I highly believe that sharing comments and raising scientific questions could benefit our society. I hope that the responses that the co-authors have provided be helpful and to the point. As he suggested, I am willing to let the journal publish the responses in the next issue.
