BMC Medicine volume 21, Article number: 166 (2023)
Retraction Note: BMC Med 17, 223 (2019)
The Editor has retracted this article. After publication, concerns were raised regarding the images presented in Fig. 7. Specifically:
The left PHA image in Fig. 7a appears highly similar to the middle PHA image in Fig. 7b (rotated);
All the Medium images in Fig. 7a and b appear highly similar; the left and right images in Fig. 7b appear to be missing some features compared with the other images.
The authors have been able to provide the quantified data, but stated that the original images are no longer available. The Editor therefore no longer has confidence in the presented data.
None of the authors agrees to this retraction.
