Retraction note: Decrease expression and clinicopathological significance of miR-148a with poor survival in hepatocellular carcinoma tissues
Diagnostic Pathology volume 11, Article number: 105 (2016)
The Editor-in-Chief and Publisher have retracted this article  because the scientific integrity of the content cannot be guaranteed. An investigation by the Publisher found it to be one of a group of articles we have identified as showing evidence suggestive of attempts to subvert the peer review and publication system to inappropriately obtain or allocate authorship. This article showed evidence of plagiarism (most notably from the articles cited [2, 3]) and authorship manipulation.
