The Editor and Publisher of OncoTargets and Therapy wish to retract the published article.

We were notified of potential image manipulation in the published article. The issues relate to the alleged duplication of Panels C and G in Figure 6, Panels B and F in Figure 7 and Panels B and F in Figure 8. The authors responded to our queries but were unable to provide a satisfactory explanation for the alleged duplication or provide satisfactory raw data relating to the figures in question. The editor determined the findings of the study were no longer valid and requested for the article to be retracted.


This retraction relates to this paper
