We, the Editors and Publisher of Cancer Management and Research, have retracted the following article.

Following publication of the article, concerns were raised regarding the duplication of images from Figure 2 with images from other unrelated articles.

  • Images for Figure 2F have been duplicated with images for Figure 3F from Zhu Z, Wang H, Pang Y, Hu H, Zhang H, Wang W. Exosomal long non-coding RNA UCA1 functions as growth inhibitor in esophageal cancer. Aging (Albany NY). 2020;12:20523-20539. (RETRACTED) and Figure 4D from Zhong X, Wen X, Chen L, Gu N, Yu X, Sui K. Long non-coding RNA KCNQ1OT1 promotes the progression of gastric cancer via the miR-145-5p/ARF6 axis. J Gene Med. 2021;23:e3330.
  • In addition, the images of Figure 2E, LOVO, vector-NC and si-NC, have been duplicated.

The authors responded to our queries but were unable to provide an explanation for the duplicated images or provide data for the study. As verifying the validity of published work is core to the integrity of the scholarly record, we are therefore retracting the article and the authors agree with this decision.

We have been informed in our decision-making by our editorial policies and COPE guidelines.

The retracted article will remain online to maintain the scholarly record, but it will be digitally watermarked on each page as “Retracted”.
