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

The authors contacted the journal asking for the article to be retracted to allow for further verification, however they did not elaborate on the reason for this. On further inspection it was found the images in Figures 2G (cell migration) and 2H (cell invasion) had been duplicated and the authors were unable to provide a satisfactory explanation for this. The authors were also unable to provide satisfactory raw data for the western blots nor were they able to provide the original images shown in Figure 6B.

The editor determined the findings of the article were no longer valid and requested for the article to be retracted.

The authors wish to apologise for this error.

Our decision-making was informed by our policy on publishing ethics and integrity and the COPE guidelines on retraction.

The retracted article will remain online to maintain the scholarly record, but it will be digitally watermarked on each page as “Retracted”.

This retraction relates to this paper
