The Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Cancer Management and Research wish to retract the published article.

Following publication, concerns were raised to the Editor in-Chief regarding the Wilms’ tumor cell lines described in the study.

Upon investigation it was found the human Wilms’ tumor cell lines used in the present study, G-401 and SK-NEP-1, had been wrongly attributed and are not, in fact, Wilms’ tumor cell lines as claimed. The cell line, G-401, has been shown to be a rhabdoid tumor cell line of the kidney and has been reclassified, accordingly, in the American Tissue Culture Collection (ATCC) (https://www.atcc.org/Products/All/CRL-1441.aspx). The cell line, SK-NEP-1 has also been investigated and was found to have a close relationship with the Ewing sarcoma cell line, not theWilms’ tumor cell line as previously indicated.

Based on this information the Editor-in-Chief has determined the results and findings of the present study are no longer valid.
