I have a question about informed consent for case reports. I have obtained a general consent from all patients. This is written in Japanese, collected from all hospitalization cases, and agrees to the use of clinical data, test data, and graphic data for both conference or journal publication purposes. Can this be considered as an agreement for the actual manuscript submission? If a target journal accepts a Japanese format, should I obtain informed consent once again?
