Leading Retractions in the Cancer Research Literature

Retraction Watch founded in 2010 has filled and helped to thrive a substantial niche. Cancer literature has presented a lot of important corrections and retractions up to date.

Over the years we have seen a certain number of cases regarding retractions in the cancer research. 

On top of the list most certainly is Anil Potti from Duke University, whose work was focused on oncogenomics – with the use of genetic information to calibrate the chemotherapy has proved to be fake. Potti’s work, however, has triggered numerous lawsuits from Duke’s patients, which are now settled, and retraction on 11 papers, which were co-authored by him.
