Seems every article imported with Fatameh (14 Million currently) has this issue:

https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?tagfilter=OAuth+CID%3A+843&limit=50&days=7&title=Special:RecentChanges&urlversion=2

Any plans to fix this?

Yes, there are some plans but I don't think consensus on what should be done. There is a ticker for it here: https://github.com/SuLab/WikidataIntegrator/issues/20

Basically the problem is we're using PubMed as the data source and according to them the title does end in a period. Its difficult to know when we should remove it; and in any case we probably want to find a reference to support the version without a period.
