The Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of the International Journal of Nanomedicine have been alerted to unacceptable levels of image duplication in the published article.

The affected figures within the article presented above are:

• Figure S3 (B) and (C) are duplicates of Figure 2 Panel I (A) and (B);
• Figure 2 Panel I (E) is a duplicate of Panel I (C);
• Figure 2 Panel II (B) and (C) are duplicates of Panel II (A);
• Figure SI Panel II (A) is a duplicate of Figure 2 Panel II (D);
• Figure SI Panel II (C) is a duplicate of Figure 2 Panel II (E);
• Figure 5 (B) is a duplicate of 5 (A);
• Figure S4 (A) is a duplicate of Figure S1 Panel I (A);
• Figure S4 (B) is a duplicate of Figure SI Panel I (B);
• Figure SI Panel (F) is a duplicate of Panel I (C);
• Figure 1D and F are duplicates of Figure 9A and D, respectively, in paper Yuan W, Zhang Y, Wu F, Li H, Cai Y, Zhang Y, Han M, Jin T. Preparation of protein-loaded sustained-release microspheres via ‘solid-in-oil-in-hydrophilic oil-in-ethanol (S/O/hO/E)’ emulsification. Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. 2010;79:326–333.
