Further to the publication of the above review article, the Editor of Oncology Letters was contacted by an interested reader who drew to our attention that an extensive overlap existed between the text of the review and the doctoral dissertation, “Identification of cancer stem cells in cell lines derived from selected types of solid tumors” by Jan Škoda (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jan_Skoda/publication/299537926_Identification_of_cancer_stem_cells_in_cell_lines_derived_from_selected_types_of_solid_tumors/links/56fe5a2408aee995dde72bbe/Identification-of-cancer-stem-cells-in-cell-lines-derived-from-selected-types-of-solid-tumors.pdf).
Following an investigation, the Journal is able to confirm that substantial parts from the review are identical with those featured in the 2016 dissertation. On those grounds, we are retracting the review from the publication. The Editor deeply regrets any inconvenience that this retraction has caused to the readership of the Journal.
