Following the publication of this paper, it was drawn to the authors attention by an interested reader that certain of the tumours featured in Fig. 6A of the above paper were strikingly similar to those featured in Fig. 8A of an article appearing in International Journal of Oncology (Fan F-Y, Deng R, Yi H, Sun H-P, Zeng Y, He G-C and Su Y: The inhibitory effect of MEG3/miR-214/AIFM2 axis on the growth of T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Int J Oncol 51: 316–326, 2017).
The Editor asked the authors for an explanation to account for the appearance of strikingly similar data in their paper independently, and they responded to request that the paper be retracted from Oncology Reports. All the authors agreed that the article should be retracted. The Editor apologizes to the readership for any inconvenience caused.
