Retraction: EBV Promotes Human CD8+ NKT Cell Development

After an internal investigation by the Wuhan University Academic Ethics Committee, the authors of this paper requested that it be retracted. Several of the dataplots in Figure 8 contain regions that appeared to be identical, and concerns have been raised about other figures. The internal investigation could not account for the apparent duplications within Figure 8 and so the provenance and accuracy of these, and potentially other, figures cannot therefore be guaranteed. As a result, the overall integrity of this work is uncertain, and the paper was retracted from PLoS Pathogens on 03 Dec 2010.
