The Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of the Journal of Blood Medicine wish to retract the published article.

It has come to our attention that a very similar version of this article was also published in PLOS ONE, Mar 2, 2020. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228929. The authors failed to properly attribute the source of their previous publication or disclose this to the editor. Thus, it has been deemed to be a redundant publication and the editor has requested for the paper to be retracted.

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The retracted article will remain online to maintain the scholarly record, but it will be digitally watermarked on each page as “Retracted”.
