Concerns about this paper were raised by a reader. Upon seeking an explanation from the authors we conclude that the content and data in the paper were extensively plagiarized from:
Mazzocoli G, Panza A, Valvano MR, et al. Clock Gene Expression Levels and Relationship with Clinical and Pathological Features in Colorectal Cancer Patients. Chronobiology International. 2011;28(10):841–851.
Dr Faris Farassati has decided that the paper in OncoTargets and Therapy should be retracted, and the relevant supervisors at the authors institutions are advised of this decision.
