Retraction Note: Intragastric exposure to titanium dioxide nanoparticles induced nephrotoxicity in mice, assessed by physiological and gene expression modifications

The Original Article was published on 13 February 2013

Retraction Note

This article [1] has been retracted by the Editor. A committee at Soochow University has investigated this case and supports the decision to retract the article. Incorrect statistical methods were used to calculate mean and S.D. values and additional errors were made in determining 8-OHdG concentrations. The committee also found that some of the original data were missing. We apologize to the readership of Particle and Fibre Toxicology.
