The following article in STEM CELLS, “Human T-cell Lymphotropic Virus Type 1 Infection of CD34+ Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells Induces Cell Cycle Arrest by Modulation of p21cip1/waf1 and Survivin,” by Banerjee P, Sieburg M, Samuelson E, and Feuer G, first published online 25 September 2008 in Wiley Online Library (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1634/stemcells.2008-0353/abstract) and then in print Volume 26, Issue 12 3047–3058, December 2008, has been retracted by agreement between the Senior Editors of STEM CELLS, AlphaMed Press, and Wiley Periodicals, Inc. This retraction follows an investigation by the Research Misconduct Committee of the State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY, and Senior Editors of STEM CELLS.

By a preponderance of the evidence, SUNY's Investigation Committee concluded that data in Figures 2D, 2G, and 2I had been fabricated and/or falsified “by manipulating the same flow cytometry sample analysis to represent different cell treatment groups and time points”. By a preponderance of the evidence, the Investigation Committee further concluded that data in Figures 3 (E, F, G, and H) and Figures 5 (E, F, G, and H) had been fabricated and/or falsified “by using flow cytometry samples analyzed under different fluorescent channels to represent the same samples and analysis”. Lastly, by a preponderance of the evidence, the Investigation Committee concluded that data in Figures 3 (E and F), 4 (A and B) and 5 (F and G) had been fabricated and/or falsified “by duplicating flow cytometry control plots”.
