Abstract

Editor-in-Chief has retracted the articles "sTNF-R Levels: Apical Periodontitis Linked to Coronary Heart Disease." published by Singhal R & Rai B and "Salivary and serum 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine level in simulated microgravity." published by Rai B, Kaur J, Jain R. An internal investigation has raised sufficient evidence of the inconsistent results and high similarity index. As such, we retract these two articles from the literature and by guidelines and best editorial practices from the Committee on Publication Ethics. We apologise to our audience about this unfortunate situation.
