Cratoxylum arborescens demonstrates apoptogenesis in MCF-7 with regulation of NF-κB

When comparing the papers it becomes apparent that they have an unacceptably high
degree of similarity and re-use. Further, there is no clear scientific distinction
between the cell lines and the results in both. Accordingly, the Editor-in-Chief and
Publisher have issued this Notice of Retraction.
